    How to add tables to my form, and how to pipe data from one field to another

    Asked by sjk03060 on June 21, 2015 at 03:35 PM

    I thought I had found what I needed with all these widgets and calculations and things. But when you come down to it, there is a lot missing. I want to add a table and be able to add data, but some of that data needs to be validated by a list, some is yes/no etc. Easy, easy in most survey builders. Not at all possible here.

    Need to pipe data from one field to another fields label. One of the most common features in any form builder. Not here! 

    Oh well, I'll continue my search.

    I can assure that this is possible with JotForm (+ Google Spreadsheet), the main feature to use is those Conditions and Spreadsheet Functions in JotForm and Google Spreadsheet respectively.

    As our friendly user maivutan has said, these features are indeed available on JotForm.

    You can add tables, and we actually have multiple widgets that allow you to do this - depending on what you want to achieve. Please take a look at our widgets:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/app/data_grid

    http://widgets.jotform.com/app/multiselect_grid

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/matrix_dynamique

    http://widgets.jotform.com/app/spreadsheet

    http://widgets.jotform.com/app/advanced_spreadsheet

    These widgets allow you to perform various tasks with your table data, even to perform calculations within our spreadsheet widgets.

    You can pipe data from one field to another by using Conditional Logic to Update a field value based on another field.

    If there is a particular feature that you think we are missing or that you are having trouble finding on JotForm, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you.
