    Repeating Sections

    Asked by stuart141simon on June 03, 2016 at 12:13 PM
    What I would like is for JotForms developers to develop a section (container) widget and then a repeating section widget. The problem with Configurable Lists is that they cannot be nested. I need the ability to nest one repeating section inside another. As it happens, JotForm rival Cognito Forms does this beautifully. However, they do not offer an interface for plugins or extensions. As such, they do not offer a field that the user will see as an instance of TinyMCE, something which I need elsewhere on my form.

    I have checked Cognito Forms repeating section on this page https://www.cognitoforms.com/features/repeating-sections and from what I saw their widget is the same as our Configurable list widget. The is an option to add more guests and fields that are repeated are Name (first and last) and email address. 

    Here is my demo form, with Configurable list widget  that has same function:

    More about configurable list you can find inside of this guide:

    If you want to achieve something else, please provide us more details about your request. Also if possible please provide us your sample Cognito Form.
