    can you define what "a large amount of records in drop down menus" might mean?

    I'm trying to decide if JotForm is appropriate. - can someone help me on this please?

    My form will have many pages - maybe 10 - it will therefore have many dropdowns?  - Is the volume of drop-downs the only challenge in using multi page forms save for later concept?

    1-100?

    200-250?

    250 -500?

    I COPIED THIS FROM ANOTHER QUESTION:

    Note: This method requires Page Break in order for it to work and as a matter of fact our session system will not be able to handle a large amount of records in drop down menus. So please be aware of it, before to implement this method.

    You should be able to use as many drop downs as you need.

    I think that mentioned note hightlighted in red means that we do not recommend to add thousands of drop down options (items), since the form is not a database and browsers might have issues handling such big drop downs

    Example:

    -Drop Down 1
    ---Drop Down Option 1
    ---Drop Down Option 2
    ---Drop Down Option ...
    ---Drop Down Option 2876 

    -Drop Down 2
    ---Drop Down Option 1
    ---Drop Down Option 2
    ---Drop Down Option ...
    ---Drop Down Option 1650 

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
