    Can JotForm create dynamic, fillable and reusable forms?

    Asked by TAS  on September 14, 2016 at 09:24 AM

    Hi,

    I have some specific data needs I wonder/hope  Jotform can help.  I have used Adobe LiveCycle Designer in the past to get his done but simply don't want the complexity anymore.  I have not used it for years...

    I am primarily keeping customer information that can grow and change.  I need to access it overtime primarily through dropbox/drive.  The data is all in house and not for public/customer consumption.

    Some Needs:

    Have a "+" button to add rows with column headers that can flow across pages

    have drop down boxes in "cells" for easy data input

    Add complete sections based on check box input

    Print the form

    Perform simple calculations

    Again - I would like to get into a better solution that Adobe if possible.  It is very complex and uber time consuming.  Is Jot Form the answer for me?  If not does anyone have a recommendation?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there,

    Please see my responses to your questions below.

     

    Have a "+" button to add rows with column headers that can flow across pages

    have drop down boxes in "cells" for easy data input

    I think you can make use of our Configurable List widget. This widget allows you to have various types of fields in cells in every row. The number of rows is dynamic. Please see this demo form. Please also see How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget.

     

    Add complete sections based on check box input

    This one I am not sure what you mean. Can you please elaborate this requirement?

     

    Print the form

    You can add the functionality to print your form by following the steps in Print Button on Forms.

     

    Perform simple calculations

    You can also do calculations with your form. Please see How to Perform Calculation in the Form?

     

    I can see that there is no account associate with your email yet. You can start by creating an account with JotForm. After that, it will just take you a couple of minutes to learn to create forms with the help of the guides we have: https://www.jotform.com/help/chapter-2-Create+Forms.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    AH... thank you for the response.  This looks very promising indeed!

     

    Add complete sections based on check box input

    This one I am not sure what you mean. Can you please elaborate this requirement?  This is pretty simple - I am sure it can be done.  When a box it has a drop down to fill from predetermined input.

     

    I will play with this - Thanks very much.

    Regarding the "Add complete sections based on check box inout" concern, do you mean that when you select a value on a checkbox the dropdown option/values dynamically changes similar to the functionality of this sample form: https://form.jotform.com/62574393343965? Can you give me a specific scenario so I can better analyze your requirement?
