    To confirm, you would like to have the Drop down in the Configurable list widget to be nested or in groups? Unfortunately, the option group only works in the default Drop down field found under the "Form Tools" section.


    For the list of things that you can do in the Configurable list widget, you can check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget.

    You can also explore the other Drop down widgets here: http://widgets.jotform.com/search/drop%20down 

    I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.
