    How can I position the fields side by side?

    How do I make the fields side by side? For example, first name & last name fields side by side on the same line.

    By default, fields are expanded in full width of the form.  You can set your fields to sit side by side by shrinking the size of your field. You can get to know more about this from this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/90-Form-field-positioning

    If you have questions or if you need assistance, please let us know.

    I read the guide, shrink the fields but still not able to get my fields email and mobile # on the same line side by side.  Can you take a look at my "United Sports App Team" form and let me know how to do this.

    Hello again,

    I've moved your email down and moved the country field up. What I did was drag and dropped the email addres field field and then used the settings to move it down. Then used the settings on the country field to move it up. As a result, Email and Phone number sits side by side.

    But if you have a position in mind, please let us know so we can adjust it for you.

    I have a related problem.

    As you can see on the image the size of the box do not expand to fit the Choose Option field. The result is that the first field cover the calculation field.

    You choose a product and the price for product is shown in calculation field.

    Best regards
