    Conditional Formatting and data entry in one row

    Asked by USTAPNW on February 11, 2016 at 05:19 PM

    Hello,

    I'm trying to collect a bunch of player's information from a team captain.  I want him/her to select how many teammates they have, and then that will conditionally create the amount of blank entry rows that match the number of players.  Instead of having each person list their name, phone number, email, etc. as a one item per row, I'm hoping we can do all those items across for each participant.  So it would look like this:

    How many teammates are playing?

    5

    Please list the information below for each teammate:

    Name             Phone Number               Email                 T-Shirt Size

    Name             Phone Number               Email                 T-Shirt Size

    Name             Phone Number               Email                 T-Shirt Size

    Name             Phone Number               Email                 T-Shirt Size

    Name             Phone Number               Email                 T-Shirt Size

     

    Can I do this as a matrix or as something else? Please let me know how to set this up.

     

    Thank you,

    Alyssa at USTA PNW

    There are two ways to achieve that.

    1. Create all the fields on the form builder and use show/hide condition to reveal the number of fields depending on the selected answer by the user.

    Example: https://form.jotform.com/52961867281971

    I am using form collapse tool under survey tools on this form and then show/hide conditions applied. I suggest to clone this form so you can figure out the setup.

    2. I think this would be so much easier, you can use config list widget. This will dynamically duplicate the set of fields you've defined as soon as the user clicks the add button. So basically, there's no need for a condition, users can add as many fields as they pleased.
