    Setting up a table like form?

    Asked by uclanre on August 26, 2015 at 01:40 PM

    Hello, I need to create a form which includes the attached questions, and could use advice as to best way to set up. As you'll note from the screenshot, "Activity," "Tasks Involved", "Who Can Do this Activity", "Collaborators" "Tools Used" and "How do you evaluate it's success" all require free text ("Value of activity" does not - although it can be set up either way), and are dependent upon the activity - of which there are several. I'm not sure if there is a matrix available that allows for free text in all cells, or if I have to use individual text boxes (which could get messy). 

    Suggestions at soonest possible opportunity are appreciated!

    You could use Matrix field that is found under Survey tools if you wish to have the free text input on your form.

    If you on the other hand want to be able to select from a dropdown option in one of the options as well (which seems to me as the case for several options if not all), then I would suggest looking into Configurable list widget.

    You can see it here: Configurable list

    You can see more on setting it up here: How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    Of course we are here to assist if you have any questions or issues along the way so just let us know about it :)
