Are there any limits in terms of fields and how does it affect the performance of the form?Asked by GranvilleRefs on February 05, 2017 at 11:36 AM
I have a form with 8 configurable list widgets. Each of these widgets have two text area fields. Unfortunately for me there are two limitations with Configurable Lists which make them unfriendly for my users.
1. The Textarea field can only have plain text. I need them to be Rich text.
2. I can not style the table produced by theses widgets in the submission emails.
I have asked but it seems that these limitations are not being rectified soon. This has forced me to find a workaround which is not ideal but much friendlier for my users. Basically I have replaced the widget with a large number of Rich text fields most of which are hidden. I have then used a radio button and a large number of conditions to show the hidden field two at a time as they are being filled. This basically reproduces (most) of the widget’s functionality. its a lot of work to replace each widget. I have replaced one widget so far (page 4).
My 8 widgets will be replaced by about 420 fields and I will have 140 conditions for them (and there are several other fields and conditions as well).
Here is my question before I do a lot more work and replace the other widgets. Are there any limits on the number of fields per form or the number of conditions per form? When should I start worrying about performance?
We offer an unlimited number of fields. There is also no limit on the conditional logic that you can add. However, the more you add fields and conditions which use a script, the more the chance that you'll get a performance issue in the form. 140 conditions, I think shouldn't slow down the form.
140 conditions, I think shouldn't slow down the form. But I would suggest monitoring it down while adding every set of fields.
