Dynamically add form fields based on user input

Jump to solution

Hello, 

 

New to Nintex here. I'm looking to dynamically add form fields based on  a number the user inputs. Say the user inputs that they have 4 entries they would like to add. I'd like to generate a form that then dynamically creates 4 form fields for entry.

Great question and here is the best way to think about it. You want to collect a set of data, but don't know how many rows the user may have. 

 

Use the repeating section control and put your controls within this. This will allow the user to determine, one or 100 rows as needed (i.e. dynamically), but done adding one row at a time.
