    Is there a way to group fields in a form?

    Asked by cchfd on June 19, 2015 at 04:24 PM

    Is there a way to group the items together in a better way to make it look more presentable rather than just using dashed lines to separate the different groups?  As you can see I have a group called Outer Pockets followed by Inside Pouch.  There are many more groups of items that I need to add but I wanted to check and see what I could do before going on.

    Have you considered using Form Collapses instead?

    You can see here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51697155230960 a cloned version of your form with form collapses in it so you can check how they would look. Feel free to clone this version to your account if you want to.

    Or you can also create a multi-page form by following the steps provided here: https://www.jotform.com/help/119-How-to-Create-Multi-Page-Forms

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the help regarding this.  I have used this widget and it works great.  The only problem I am now having is my Submit button is buried in the last section.  How do I get it out?

     

    Here is the link to one of the forms I am creating:

    It appears that you've already corrected the issue because on my end the submit button, along with a text area for comments, lies under the last form collapse:

    Could you please confirm whether the problem has already been fixed? If it hasn't, in which browser are you noticing it?

    Thanks

    Thank you for letting us know and I am glad to hear that you were able to resolve this on your own, but for others that might be on a lookout for the same thing, the way to do it is to add additional Form Collapse field right above the fields that we want always to be shown, but:

    1. we set it to be opened

    2. and set it as hidden

    and voila - that is it.

    We now have all of our form collapses working how we want them, with the segment that we want to show shown - no matter if it is under them or in between them, the steps are just the same.
