Allowing Multiple Data-Set Submissions for a Group of Input Fields

Field Set is used to group a set of input fields to allow columns of input fields to be configured or allow multiple sets of data submitted by the sales quote recipient. For example, if the form is a Student Registration form for training course attendees, you would need to collect the details of each student attending. In this case, you will need to allow the sales quote recipient to enter many student details such as the first name, last name, and gender of students attending a course; the form would be required to allow multiple students' details to attend.

To begin, create or edit a sales quote.

Click on the + button located between every content block while working in the Sales Quote Editor and then select Form at the very bottom.

A new form block will be added and a content editor toolbar will appear at the top of the Sales Quote Editor.

To begin inserting a data field onto a form within a field set, click on the Add Field button located between every content block while working in the Sales Quote Editor.

A selection box will now appear, as shown below.

Now select the option Field Set. You can add many Field Set(s) in a form.

Allowing the Sales Quote Recipient to Add More Than One Set of Data

In our example, we have made a form that would allow the sales quote recipient to provide the name and phone number of students that will attend a training course. In the real world, it would be likely that more than one student would attend a course, so we need to configure the Field Set to allow the sales quote recipient to add more than one student.

To configure a field set to allow multiple data entries, click on the Cogs icon on the fieldset panel, as shown below.
