    Is it possible to create a "drill down" dropdown menu where the results are compiled in the same columns?

    Asked by UNLVCE on December 31, 2015 at 02:31 PM

    I want to set up a drill down menu where the results show in the same columns.

    For example: Car Make, Car Model, Car Year.
    User 1: Toyota, Camry, 2010.
    User 2: Subaru, Outback, 2016
    User 3: Toyota Corolla, 2014

    I saw this early solution using conditions http://www.jotform.com/answers/66511-Drill-down-drop-down-boxes-or-similar

    However, if I'm reading this correctly the results for each would end up in separate columns, rather than having a single column for car makes, car models and then year.

    Is there another way to set this up in jotform?



    P.S. I'm a long time Jotform user. I'm now at a new organization and trying to make the case for my department to adopt Jotform instead of our current survey software. The other software that does do drill downs (which we need), but lacks many other features I've come to expect from Jotform.
