    Also, is there a way to send users to duplicate sections of my form (see the very last question on my form)?

    I believe you are looking to duplicate the questions of your form, and then send users either to the end of your form or to the next (duplicated) section based on whether they wish to add another "grant".

    This is possible with our forms, but you will have to duplicate all the questions the number of times that you want to allow your users to "add another grant". In other words, if your form will accept up to 4 grants, then you will have to create your questions (form fields) for all 4 of those grants.

    The easiest way to duplicate a range of form fields is to right-click on any form field when you are editing the form, and select Manage Multiple Fields:

    You can read more about it in the following guide:

    Once you have created the all of the questions for the number of grants you want to allow, then we can simply use conditional logic to show/hide or skip-to-page based on whether users have selected to add another grant, or not:

    Since you are already using a form with multiple pages, it would be best to use skip-to-page conditions. Since the form will always naturally flow from one page to the next, you can actually set up your skip-to-page rules for each "Add another grant" question to only skip to the last page of the form if No is selected:

    Please note that using skip-to-page conditions together with Form Tabs widget will not be able to make users skip to the proper page correctly, because both the Form Tabs widget and the conditions will be trying to decide which page you are navigated to when you click on "Next". For this reason, in order to use the skip-to-page conditions correctly, you may need to remove the Form Tabs widget from the form.

    You can see a demo form of this setup here:
