    Is there a limit to how many text, drop downs, checks, and radio button

    Asked by regional on January 09, 2013 at 12:16 PM

    Is there a limit to how many text, drop downs, checks, and radio buttons you can have on the main form before it becomes too complicated to save and return to? Are their any restrictions or complications that can occur with a "heavy" form?

    Hi there,

    As per your question, we do not place any restrictions on the number of fields that you can have on a form.  

    With that said, it has been our experience that the longer the form the more difficult it becomes to maintain and troubleshoot. This is especially true when using conditional logic on your forms.

    Another thing that you may want to keep in mind is the rate of completion for your form. The longer a form, the least likely your users will go through the process of filling it out.

    Our recommendation is always to keep your forms as lean and concise as possible.  If it is not possible to keep your form short, there are tools to help group the questions into sections to make it more appealing to your users.
