    Hello iwizz,

    Though there is no direct feature available to create form with similar functionality but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the options available:

    #1. Have you checked our "Dynamic Dropdowns" widget already? Please take a look and see if this fits into your requirement.

    #2. Another alternative is to add multiple "Auto Complete" widgets in form and then take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to show/hide the auto complete widget to achieve your requirement. 

    Please take a look at the following demo form I have created for you with "Auto Complete" widget: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50693426131956? 

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
