    Hi, I am a developer creating forms for my client who owns this account, I have few more jotform accounts of my own where multiple clients are so I have a deeper interest in helping this get sorted out.

    I am implementing the Infinite List Widget for a few forms on this client's account. I have encountered a few issues, the threads of which are linked below. The forum support is great, but since its always a different support person addressing the issue, I am getting conflicting help at this point, and i'm sure me addressing all the issues at once isn't helping either.

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/965931-How-to-make-the-columns-generated-by-Infinite-List-Widget-more-mobile-responsive#4

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/965304-Widgets-Custom-CSS-is-duplicated-in-source-code#3

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/964475-Adding-labels-to-infinite-list-widget#9

    The biggest issue right now is being able to view all the columns within the list on any screen size smaller than desktop on Chrome. 

    The next issue down would be that of the column labeling (which shows up once a row is added but until then can only be seen within the form field ... something else that is hard to hide and also the length of which can easily be cut off by the field width. 

    Anyway, the first one seems at least important enough that it is addressed by a singular person or group instead of via the forums, where I have support members telling me conflicting things and not agreeing on what the solution is or not understanding what the actual issue is that I am addressing.

    I need to setup as much of this as possible from within Jotform so that the client can continue forth managing the form once I am done doing all of the formatting of the display on its website. They obviously want to stick with using Jotform at this point and so do I.  This is also why im not attempting to customize the source code directly on their website.

    Thanks for your continued support.

    The problem is that the widget is limited to its current functionality.

    The Infinite List widget is based on a table layout with the exact columns widths specified in settings, the widget does not adapt itself based on a device which is used to access the form. Also, it has no option to add labels to the inputs.

    We can forward separate feature requests (one request per support forum thread) regarding the Infinite List widget to our developers. However, we cannot guarantee that those requests will be implemented in the nearest time. The developers have their priorities and usually implement things that are asked the most.
