During research and testing I came across some issues while trying to create repeating fields.
Intent: Create repeating fields in a custom list form
Problem: In the custom list I can create 5 columns asking for the same information but I don't like this way because my list will grow large with a lot columns. I can create a InfoPath form but I do not want it in a form library because I don't want to item saved as a form.
Possible solutions: Read in posts (that I don't understand) to
- If part of your content is repeating, consider flattening that schema so that it can repeat. For example, you could limit your book request form to no more than ten books per form.
- You can also use multiple lists and link them together using lookup fields and web part connections. This works well for master/detail scenarios where one list tracks all the items and another contains the specific details for each item.
2 above sounds good not sure how to do it.
Question: Is there a way to create repeating fields in a custom list that will save into the list and not a InfoPath form? If using InfoPath will not give me that outcome, how can I do this just using SharePoint form?
