    If someone completing my form selects 2 or more from a drop down question how do I make them complete a section of the form for each unit required?

    Using the conditions, if someone completing my form selects 2 or more from a drop down question how do I make them complete the same section of the form for each unit required?

    More detail: the form I am creating is an exam entry form. If an applicant wants to apply for 2 or more exams they need to provide the information for each exam. I can't figure out how to do this?

    If you want the user to fill out a section of the form when they select an option from the dropdown field, then I believe the Form Collapse tool in conjunction with a Show/Hide condition would be suitable for your requirement. Simply follow the steps below.

    1. Add the form collapse and then duplicate the fields/questions that you want to put under the form collapse.

    2. Then add the Show/Hide condition for each of the numbers.

    3. Once you have that setup, the user should now be able to fill out a section of the form for each unit required.

    Here's a demo form so you can see it i action: https://form.jotform.com/61251929132957
