    i would like to create a grocery shopping form. users can enter recipes from several sources, import or drag the recipes into a weekly meal planner, drag items from the planner into a grocery list or import the meals into a grocery list and enter other grocery items as needed. items on the grocery list can be found and comparison priced to grocery stores. users may select the grocery store they want to shop at. then with the final data inserted, the end form will show the name of the grocery store, the items and quantities, given the accumulated price. if several stores are selected, then the each form will be the same format. users may print out or send the grocery list to a mobile device. users may also purchase their list and select a grocery delivery request, or purchase the grocery list online and have it waiting at the store for pick up. 

    i need the users to have the ability to to drop and drag, as well as entering something on one section that duplicates itself in another section within that section's template.


    evernote.com has the ability to gather recipes and i would like something similar. i would also know how to create templates for the drag and drop.

    Unfortunately, as far I know, none of the available widgets or apps can do such functionality. I'm afraid the feature you are looking is out of Jotform's capability.

    We do however have a drag and drop file upload widget in which users can easily drag the files to upload them to your form. This might be the closest way to achieve this with Jotform. This widget http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/visual_multi_select may be of help too where it allows you to pick and move items from the left side to the right side, though it doesn't have integration with any services.
