    Can repeating fields automatically fill other fields?

    Asked by vdadalyan on July 23, 2015 at 02:54 PM

    Hi, I built a great form but it would be fantastic if I could have fields like "Name" which repeat throughout the document to fill themselves in other areas requesting a "Name".

    The agreement I built on Jotforms is also available in PDF and in the PDF version I've been able to set field IDs which allow for automatically filled in sections of the same field ID.

    Thanks for your time and by the way, I looked through several online form builders and yours was the best.
