    Time off request

    Asked by rkelley on October 06, 2016 at 04:27 PM

    Hi, I've attached a sample of a time off request we use in a fillable Word file right now. The problem is that some use PC's and some use apple. I thought maybe jotform would be the way to go. As you can see, there are tables and the vaca portion has dates you can fill in. Each row represents a week which makes it easy to track how much time they have taken and how much is available. Do you have a suggestion of how to make this work with your software or something even better or would this be better used with another software? I did try to look up tables in the help section as well as formatting dates to allow for many to fit in a row and looked at some of your templates.

    If you only need the table where your users are able to enter data, I would suggest you to use the Matriz Field then, you will find it under the Survey Fields section in the Form Builder:

    The matrix field can be displayed as you're showing in your screenshot and you can also choose between different field types: 

    However, if you need to set up a limit for each selection or entry, then you should use a widget, for example, if you need to display dates in your form and each date has a max number of times it can be selected then this widget will help: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/appointment_slots 

    You may also check on our widgets page to find one that helps to achieve what you want: https://widgets.jotform.com/ 

    This guide will help to add a widget to your form: How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form

    Hope this helps.
