    Matrix with text inputs and drop downs

    Asked by KSMIRL on August 04, 2015 at 08:56 AM

    Need to build a table using the matrix tool with 3 columns of text inputs and 1 column of drop downs (see attached screenshot for an example).

    Is this possible? I can do 4 columns of inputs OR 4 columns of drop downs, but can't figure out how to combine them

    Thanks!

    You should be able to this in the configurable list widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list

    Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget.

    Text and Dropdown field type.

    Then you have the option to show minimal fields:

    By the way, the table is not possible in the current Matrix Field under Survey tools. Because in the current matrix, you can only select one field type.

    Thanks
