How can I set up a web form using Cognito Forms such that users can only submit it if they have completed at least one entry in a repeating section?

I have tried setting "require > always" for the subsections of each entry (there is no similar option for the complete repeating section) but users can still submit the form if they delete all entries.

I am a developer for Cognito Forms.

This is an idea that has been brought to our attention and a feature that we do plan to add in the future, you can follow the progress for this over on our Idea Board.

  • While this is not a perfect solution, you can also add a Calculation field of type Number to your form, with a calculation like =RepeatingSection.Count() and specify 1 as the Min for the Range. This will prevent the form from being submitted if all of the repeating sections are removed. Commented Apr 2, 2015 at 16:51
