    Is there a way to make configurable list fields available with the continue forms later feature?

    Asked by nitetraincoach on October 13, 2015 at 12:31 PM

    We have drivers that need to be able to use this form throughout a week before submitting. Everything except the config. fields can be returned to.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible, but I will send a request to our second level, so this widget can work with this feature: https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    Please note that if the request is approved, there is no estimated time-frame for it's implementation. You will be notified via this thread about any update.

    Do you have any other ideas on how to make a similar fields that will save? The users for these forms are filling sometimes 30 records and the entire list will disappear if they loose connection on submit.

    A temporary solution would be using regular fields so they can work along with the Continue Forms Later feature:

    1) Add your fields:

    2) Then duplicate them as many times you consider, this example is for up to 4 records, see the animated image bellow:

    3) Then by injecting custom CSS code, we will make the fields stay closed to each other, example:

    #id_74,#id_75,#id_76,#id_77,#id_78,#id_79,#id_80,#id_83,#id_84,#id_85,#id_86,#id_87,#id_88,#id_89{

    padding-top: 1px !important;

    padding-bottom: 1px !important;

    margin-top: 1px !important;

    margin-bottom: 1px !important;

    }

    #id_91,#id_92,#id_93,#id_94,#id_95,#id_96,#id_97,#id_99,#id_100,#id_101,#id_102,#id_103,#id_104,#id_105{

    padding-top: 1px !important;

    padding-bottom: 1px !important;

    margin-top: 1px !important;

    margin-bottom: 1px !important;

    }

    4) We are going to add a radio button field bellow each section:

    5) We will create conditions to show the fields, based on this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool

    This will be the result, form's URL: https://form.jotform.co/52984691304866

     

    If you like it, you can clone my form and use it: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps, let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.

    This might work! Is there a way to make the output similar to the configurable list spreadsheets view? If not the results will be very long.

    Unfortunately, the result will not be the same as in the configurable list widget.
