    How to add and remove fields in the form ?

    Asked by Mikellll on December 14, 2015 at 12:20 PM

    1)Is there a way to use a + for every extra field and a x to delete an individual field? Reason I’m asking is that users sometimes discover midway they have less or more accounts. I want to avoid them losing data when adding or deleting fields by toggling the dropdown.

    - If a user midway creates extra fields will this impact the already filled in fields?

    - If a user midway deletes fields will this impact the already filled in fields?

    If you are looking to allow your users to remove fields from the form, this is not possible, they can not remove, for example, the email field, or the name field.

    But, you can use a widget to do it, the user will not remove the field, but with the widget he/she will be able to add or delete some fields provided by the widget, I will share you a link and there are some widgets related about what you are trying to achieve : https://widgets.jotform.com/category/multiple_entries

    Hope this helps.
