    adding section numbers and field subnumbers

    Asked by DPCREATE on October 26, 2015 at 02:10 PM


    Hi I have a form with multiple sections, to make it clear and referenceable in completion instructions.  

    i.e.  i would like a way of auto numbering the sections and sub sectional fields as follows:

    1. your details

    1.1 name

    1.2 surname


    2. store information

    2.1 store name

    2.2 store type


    3. declaration

    3.1 Agree to T&C's


    is there any easy way to achieve this numbering using a widget or something?

    Unfortunately, I don't think we have one that you can use to do this in the form. I would suggest doing it manually instead. Add the numbers as soon as you add the fields.

    Perhaps you can use the Configurable List Widget for the sectioning option as well.

    You can check the solution offered by our colleague Abajan on this discussion thread


    He uses CSS and Configurable List to add auto numbering on the added fields.

    Here is the demo form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/43265143769966  provided on that solution.

    Hope this help. Let us know if there is more we can help you with.
