    Can a user "add" a field?

    Asked by aspirebrokers on March 17, 2016 at 05:41 PM

    Hi Guys,

     

    On one of my forms I need to collect data that may have several parts.  For instance people can list the propertied they own.  Is there a way that I could show the fields for one property and have an "add another property" button that reveals another set of fields for the next property.

    I need this feature for people with multiple children, multiple mortgages, multiple credit cards etc etc

    Trying to capture lots of data while showing the minimum fields to people.

    I'm not sure if I understand your query correctly. Do you mean to allow your users to add additional field data on the form? If so, it is possible by using one of the following widgets.

    User Contributed Radio Buttons

    User Contributed Dropdown

    User Contributed Checkbox

    Hope this information helps! If you are looking for something different, please let us know. We will see what best we can do for you.

    Thank you!

    Hi Kiran,

    No this is not quite what I need.  Lets say a user has 5 credit cards.  I need to know the type, limit, interest rate and balance of all 5.  However I don't want to show room for 5 CCs on every form as some people only have one.  I would like there to be an "add credit card" button and each time it is pressed it reveals another set of fields where the required info can be entered.

    Is there a way to set this up?

    I believe it is possible to fulfill your requirement by using the Configurable List widget.
    widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list

    By using the configurable list widget, you can setup certain fields and the user can choose to add more if they have multiple children or properties by clicking the "+" or "Add more" button.

    Here's a demo so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/60868815334968

    However, please note that collecting credit card information is prohibited in jotform as it is a violation of Jotform's Terms.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.
    Regards.
