    Weekly Work Report - Adding rows when needed.

    Asked by nagaraj on May 05, 2012 at 04:52 AM

    Good Evening. I want to create a form for captuting details of clients met during the week, action items and discussion drtails.

    As the number of clients met will vary for each sales person and each week, how can i create a form where my users select adding rows when they use the form.


    Please help.

    There is really no immediate tools or code to dynamically add rows when needed.
    This can be easy if you have your own website and embed your form using source code method, and then inject functions using javascript or PHP. 

    BUT you can also use what JotForm can do out-of-the-box. I can think of 2 ways to do it.

    1. Pre-populate the form with the input boxes as rows (I suggest the matrix tool). Then use a drop down field to show/hide the required rows using -Conditional-Logic-on-Forms . i.e. the dropdown box contains the number of rows needed, then you have a matrix with same number of rows selected from drop box.

    2. You can also try using the collpase tool. Add a header text on top of the collapse tool, indicating if an additional is needed. In the collapse tool, the form content is a matrix tool with corresponding number of rows needed.

    Hope this helps you in any way. Please contact us if you need further assistance.
