It would be very convenient if a display rule could be added to multiple elements at the same time.
Did you know that Web Form Builder can be used for both simple and complicated forms and that it's not limited to the default fonts and buttons? Take a look at a form we developed for WindowTinting.com.

I vote agree on this too! But....

In the meantime it's very easy to add them, just copy the text from one to the other(s). Yes it's more tedious than just selecting a handful of elements, but much easier than going through the menu selections to add them manually to each one. :)

Somebody mentioned hiding and showing sections which would essentially be the same thing. This would be great. I'm just wrapping up a form that I'm using as a calculator at work. This would have saved me a ton of time and definitely easier to keep track of. +1:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hiding/unhiding sections would be very helpful, but I'm thinking about a little more control. To hide/unhide sections only allows for elements that are grouped. What if there are five duplicate sections of the form, but only one element out of each section needs to be hidden? By being able to select multiple elements and apply a display rule, the elements don't have to be grouped. On the other hand, being able to do a section at a time would add a level of convenience because it allows for multiple element selection with one click in order to apply the display rule to all.

+1 on the three suggestions below!
Just started working with WFB after having worked with a similar product which had these. Sure would be nice to have them here.

- Fieldsets: a nice way of grouping fields into logical components, especially complex forms with a way for the "Show element" display rules to point to fieldsets rather than fields.
- Hidden fields: via the "hidden" input tag, or via CSS.
- Datetime picker: As opposed to Date picker with no time. There are a few lovely no frill open source examples available.

Two other requests:
- a Time entry (HH:MM am/pm) magical element
- The ability to use Show Element conditional logic based on the value of a hidden field

All 'n all great product though!

Those are some pretty cool suggestions Matt. I would love to see the time element.

The ability to add a second (or multiple) email addresses to the auto response message...

For security reasons I need to respond to the official email address we have on record (this pre-populates an email field on my form) but I want my users to be able to add an alternative address in if they want to (perhaps they have one they check more regularly than their official one). So the form offers this as an option...

...but I need to send the auto response to both (if they have entered a second).

eg...
The first is [email1], the second is [email2] - which could be empty.

If I could put [email1],[email2] into the auto response set-up that would be great (and an empty second field must not throw an error of course)

Thanks!

Rob.
