    How many options we can list down when setting up an IF Contain Rule in Conditions?

    Asked by MaidCrew on December 25, 2016 at 07:17 AM

    Hi, We're just wondering what the limits are for the contains condition.

    We're wanting to set up a referral program that allows current clients to share a friends & family discount... with their email acting as the discount code.

    If we were to enter all our current client's emails into a "contains" condition field, all separated by a comma, we're just wondering how many emails or contain elements can be added to that contain field before the form starts to degrade or lock-up as a result of the "search" for a match amidst all the emails stored.

    We would be starting with about 300-400 emails. This number would grow as we continue to add more emails to the field over time.

    Thanks in advance!

    Merry Christmas!

    I tried this with 1 thousand emails and it's working. If you cannot add an email beyond this number, you can just add a new IF rule or condition. Here's an example:

    Make sure to select "IF ANY" in the dropdown for triggering the logic.
