Checkbox list with extra columns for date etc.

  1. I am currently learning all the features of Gravity Forms and have what may be a simple question to answer. I am creating an online form for a doctor's office and want to know how to create a long checklist that includes an extra column for "Date last given". For example, the form includes a list of immunizations for the person to check if they have had that particular shot. It would include a checkbox in the first column, the name of the immunization in the second column (i.e. "Tetanus Shot"), and another column for them to indicate the "Date last given." How could I do that? I tried to find my answer on the forums, but really didn't see an answer to what I'm trying to do. Thanks for your help!

  2. Sounds like you want a checkbox in one column and then a field in the next column which can hold a date. To do that, you can use our CSS Ready Classes of gf_left_half and gf_right_half.

    You would build your form with alternating checkbox fields and text fields, and give the checkbox a Custom CSS class or "gf_left_half" and the text field a class of "gf_right_half".

  3. Thanks for the help Chris. I guess that means that each item in the checklist has to be entered individually to be able to create a corresponding Date column. Then I need to apply some specific CSS to the checkboxes and Date fields to make it look more like a single list and not a bunch of individual items.

    It works, but is that the easiest way to set it up?

  4. I believe that is the easiest way to set it up. Do you have any of this online now, so we can take a look and see if you're headed in the right direction?
