    Form that can collect a subset of responses?

    Asked by Chris on March 11, 2016 at 03:07 PM
    Is it possible to have a subform that can collect a subset of responses?  For example, I'm building a form in which I'd like to know what countries a person is going to and the dates they will be in each country.  Can I have those responses add to a separate form that can collect as many responses as necessary?

    Unfortunately, we cannot connect different forms between each other.

    Could you please provide us with a bit more information about your use case? We will see if there are any workarounds.

    The issue is that one person might just visit one country, but another person completing the form might visit many countries, so it would be nice if an unlimited number of countries could be added. I could add hidden fields that would appear when one country was completed, but then I would have many empty fields on many responses.

    You may consider using some widget fields to allow your users to add additional items.

    Here are some examples:

    Dynamic Textbox

    Configurable list

    Infinite List

    Field Multiplier

    Add Options

    Alternatively, this is possible to hide empty fields from the emails. We also hide empty fields on submissions page by default.
