    Hi,

    Multi-page form is using Page Break field while Collapse form is using our Form Collapse field. Both fields are under Survey Tools:

    Both are good for fields with multiple options, but I would suggest using Page Break :)

    Thank you!

    I think my colleague did not mean to establish  that one is better than the other, may be  he prefers the way you can interact with a form using Page Break. Please load this two forms examples:

    1)With Form Collapse:

    http://form.jotform.co/form/42927296356870

    2) With Page Break:

    http://form.jotform.co/form/42928126517862

    So, you can use the one of your preference in your form, you may clone those forms in your account if you want to: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL, hope this helps you, let us know if you have more questions.

    I will review this in the morning. Do you have a phone number to call? I would much rather have direct conversation rather than email exchange. And is there a book out there? I find it cumbersome to sort through email FAQs, although I am appreciative of your responses today.

    Thank you,

    Carolyn
