    Large form - slow to edit

    Asked by tracyalexander on April 30, 2017 at 04:30 PM

    I realise that my form has lots and lots of conditions but I am finding it very difficult to edit as it now takes so long.

    I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have that would enable me to keep my form as it is but improve its performance

    Thank you

    The bigger the form is with lots of contents, and a lot of script functions (i.e. Conditions) the most likely the form will become sluggish and will take speed penalty when loading the form in Form Builder.

    I see your form is very long and do have a lot of Conditions already on it.

    Please take note that these are online forms. So it constantly connect to the JotForm server using the internet.

    Depending on your internet speed, the performance will vary in proportion to the contents of your form and scripts that the form uses as well.

    For the published forms, having the live form hosted on your own website improve performance as well since most of the content will be loaded from your website. This is achieve by using the full source code of the form and have it embedded on your own hosted page.

    But ultimately, having a well designed shorter, dynamic and easily used form is still the best way to make your form effective and have an excellent user experience.

    I hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.
