Single sheet, multiple DIFFERENT forms

Options

Hi!

I have a single sheet (attendance register), completed via a single form.

How do I create different forms to add entries to the single sheet (new row per entry), without the new forms changing the other forms already created?


I duplicated my master form and changed the title and I need to change two fields within the form. However, the changes I make in the new forms also make the change to the same fields in the master form and other forms linked to this sheet.


Is there a workaround to ensure that I can create additional forms for a single sheet, but with different options to be selected for the same fields within the form for the single sheet?


Example: Training title: On the master form, the user can select a single entry from a list of options within field A.


On form 2: The form is catering for a single title, and Ive used the same Training title field from the master form, but I only have 1 single title for them to select from - to ensure that that specific title is entered into that row on the sheet. - My problem is that if I remove the other titles from this field in the form, it updates the other forms with my change.


Please advise?

    Hi @ErnestVASA

    I hope you're well and safe!

    When you change the column details in the form, you change it in the sheet, so that's why it changes in all forms.

    A potential Workaround could be to add so-called helper columns with the different options for the forms.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
