    Can I split my forms into sections/parts?

    Asked by Eileen Reppenhagen on January 31, 2014 at 07:46 AM
    My form grew to 90 questions before I stopped because it started to become unstable.I'd like to know if there's a way I could split apart the form into sections to make it easier to work with.

    Yes, you can split your form into sections. You can use our Form collapse feature or Page Breaks feature.

    that's not what I mean, I'm already using those features. I mean, I want to separate out the form into different files so that they can pick a jotform to complete on a theme.
    The file is too big and it hangs as a result. I want smaller chunks. 90 items is too big.

    I think what you can do here is to separate sections into multiple forms and embed each of the form into another form - a base form.

    After you create the forms, embed it using our iFrame Method: Getting the Form iFrame Code into the Free Text HMTL (under Form Tools) field:

    Add another field such as the radio button for example and add the form names as the options. Use this radio button field to the conditional logic to show the form after they select it from the radio button field.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Welvin, 

    When I press your form from the previous response, I get this, which is similar to what is happening in my forms. How do you fix this?
