    How do I create an option to address multiple registrants?

    Asked by asopofcharlotte on September 13, 2015 at 08:58 PM

    I created a summer camp registration form and some families may want to register multiple children.  How do I create the option for registering multiple siblings under the same form without a parent having to submit an entirely new application for each sibling?

    create how registration form parent same form

    Hi asopofcharlotte,

    You can do it with conditions.

    First, you should add a field to ask how many child will attend and duplicate same field for example: Child's Name

    Then click conditions

    Select Show / Hide a form field then click next and set your conditions rules

    I guess you understand the logic. 

    You can also use widget which named Dynamic Text box. However, I guess conditions are more useful for you.

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    Thank you

    Hello asopofcharlotte.

    I tried the suggestion of JotForm support evren but I used a matrix field instead. 

    Here's the trial form

    It's really amazing how JotForm makes form-creation easy :)

    Like for this example, discounting 20% for the succeeding child?

    The output can be manipulated using Form Calculations.
