What about repeatable fields?Browser Info Environment
So I'm thinking like a "flag" to toggle on/off the ability to repeat a field type.
Maybe my use case example will illustrate clearly.
I want to create a block for a family. So this "family" block will be used to add a family to a listing of families (like for a church).
But since different families are different sizes, the fields for the individual members needs to be repeatable, since some of the fields are the same (just repeated as many times as necessary) and so the user can add however many is necessary for each family. So it would have the following as an example.
Family Name (The whole household name)
Husband cell phone
Wife cell phone
Child one name
Child one email
Child one phone
Child two name
... etc. etc.
Can this add-on facilitate this sort of use?
It's a great idea, but it's a little more complicated than at first glance...primarily because it would have to be setup as a repeatable "group" of fields. For example, I've had a form where I needed to repeat possible colleges of a user. In that instance we had to have the college name, city, and state. So you'd need to group those three together and make the entire group repeatable.
Same with your example - Child name, email, and phone would need to be grouped together and repeatable.
All that to say - it's on my radar, but not currently possible. I'll keep you in the loop if it's something I end up adding.
I made a choice field with the number of persons (1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5, 6) of the family to sign up. Then I used rules to control the visibility of the Fields "Person 2 Name", "Person 2 Birthday", "Person 3 Name", "Person 3 Birthday", etc according to the chosen number of persons.
Might at least be a workaround until there's repeatable fields.
Ahh, I get it. And from the sounds of it, grouping isn't an issue, other than how it's handled in the view template, because you use the same type rules simply repeated as necessary, right?
I'd can't wait to hear from Justin @jgarcia if the same would work w/ Formify. If so, I'm buying it!
