    How Can I Allow Users to Add Multiple Fields Under a Section?

    Asked by madhuriaddanki on January 14, 2016 at 11:37 PM

    I have a form that is being used to submit abstracts for a conference by authors. There are multiple fields for each author (like name, email..) and the number of authors varies. I want the user to be able to add authors (and multiple fields for each). In the example below you will see that I have Author 2, Author 3 sections each having a set of fields. Is it possible to have the user add as many Author sections as they need?

    Hi Madhuri,

    I think the best formula for your use case is the "Configurable List" widget. With that one, users can add as many author section as they need by pressing the "+" shaped button. Please, see the documentation about the widget:

    Also, I created a demo for you. It is accessible from the following link:

    As it is seen from the below, the widget allows to add/remove authors without any limitation:

     

    If you need any information while customizing your form, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Thanks.
