    Dynamically adding repeating form fields in form.

    Asked by KristenBurke on March 19, 2015 at 11:00 AM

    We would like to shorten our Child-Preregistration form so that parents can register one child, and have the option to add more children.  I saw that it is possible to add a text box, but with each child come several other questions (age, grade, allergies, etc...)

    Is it possible to add all of these fields per child added?  What widget should I use for that?

    Hello KristenBurke,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement.

    I would suggest you to take a look at our "Configurable List" widget which should allow your user to duplicate the fields.

    Another option is to take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to show/hide form fields based on the number of child user wants to add. You may also like to take a look at the following guides on how to show hide multiple fields:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool 

    Please take a look at the following cloned form where I have added the required conditions and see if this is what you wanted to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50774650890967?

    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!
