    Well, I am not sure that is exactly what I am asking. Sorry if the question was a little vague, I happened to forget to put additional information and you guys do not have a way of editing posted questions. I am trying to make a student evaluation form in which the students put in the courses they are taking or already took. I want for there to be a way to add a button or link that would add another "course field" below the last one that exists. This way the default is to have only one course field, and students can click a link and add one by one (as many times as they want), thus letting them input as many courses as they have taken. Is this possible or would I have to actually program this part?

    Hi,

    I don't think jot form is designed to create fields on the fly, based on user input..

    You can control display of fields based on user input(i.e. some fields are hidden till a user selects an option), however i do not see anything that creates new fields based on user input..

    @fxr: I got it to work! :) Thank you. I had not noticed that you can add Conditions to the form. Thank you, the conditions work for now. 

    Now I have one more question, is there a way to add a number field without having the up and down arrows? Currently the conditions I have set only work for when the user types the number. If you use the arrows, the conditions do not work at all.

If you use the arrows, the conditions do not work at all. AND if I use a simple text field with the restriction of having only numerical input, the conditions are not set for numbers but for text. Therefore, if I use a regular text field, there is no way to check the number that is given by the user.
