    I would like to create a form where there are three requests per line.

    Asked by mrhenryb on August 20, 2016 at 12:56 PM

    I would like to create a form where there are three requests per line. The first two requests would have a drop-down list and the last field would have a user input.

    I would have the user after completing the third item use the enter key to duplicate the previous line for additional input, for the same questions. Once the line is complete and the user has completed that section, when he used the tab key the cursor would move to the next field. For example in submitting a recipe, field one would be numerical quantity; 1/2, 1-1/2, etc, field two would be unit of measure; tsp, cup, gal, etc. and the third field would be ingredient.

    Is this available?

    Thank you.

    I'm sorry, but I didn't understand how your form should look like, but from what you are describing, you could use Configurable List Widget, that will allow you to have line of fields and ability to add new lines of the same fields:

    Another way would be to use Conditions to show/hide certain areas of your form based on selection on your form.

    Please let us know if this could work for you, if not, please give us more details about the workflow of your form so we can guide you in the right direction.

    Thank you!
