    If you are trying to make a column of fields, you can do that by positioning the fields side by side. Here's our guide for that: https://www.jotform.com/help/90-Form-Field-Positioning.

    If you want a single field, you can use our Matrix:

    If you want a column of different fields, you can use our configurable list widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget.

    I was wanting to position 2 separate survey questions side by side in order to maximise screen space.  Is this possible?

    It is possible to put your survey questions side by side by using the shrink feature as outlined in the guide provided by my colleague


    After shrinking the elements you might have to increase the width of your form, since a matrix widget might have a lot of entries, use the CSS snippet below.

    .form-all {
        width : 100%;
        min-width : 940px;

    Use the form designer to add your CSS.

    Paste the code under the CSS tab of the designer then save the changes.


    Here is the outcome on the demo form I used
