Create a webform list

The list field type allows you to collect multiple sets of data. For example, you may need to capture account name, account number, and account type for each of a client’s accounts. You may also not know how many accounts a client has. Using an list field, you can create the “set” of data fields you want to collect relating to each item (e.g. account) without defining the number of items in advance. Therefore, lists help to streamline the form filling experience while also allowing you to collect comprehensive data about each item.
