    Please do note that we can only assist with one issue / question per thread. What that means is that it is best to always open a new thread per new question.

    At this time I have moved your question to a new thread for you.

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/848522 - for the options (problem 2)

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/848523 - for the email attachment

    Now in regards to the first question (problem one).

    I believe that you want to add another field next to your current date field which would state that it is not required?

    This should be possible, but it would require some CSS to do so. So what I would suggest is to first set all of the fields as you want them and the checkbox option that would state that it is not applicable. Then once you do that, let us know and we will help you with the CSS that sets it all together in one field.

    Hi Ben,

    Okay all fields are now set. Please check.


    How can achieve this now in the "WP Expiry Date"?

    I have made a clone version of the form you have posted in your last reply and added a checkbox field on the Configurable List widget.

    I have added the field after the "WP EXPIRY DATE(IF APPLICABLE)" field.

    Then, I have added the CSS code below after in the widget's Custom CSS tab.

    td.col5 {

        left: -110px;

        top: 20px;

        position: relative;

        width: 0px;

        font-size: 12px;


    td.col5 .checkbox-container {

        width: 100px;


    Aside from adding the codes above I have also updated the existing codes since I have inserted another field in the widget and it affected the codes that were previously added.

    I would suggest you clone the form below to view the changes I have applied.


    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
