Data download for multiple forms embedded with iframe embed?

    My form is starting to get really complicated and I'm thinking about splitting it up into multiple forms, and then using the Iframe Embed widget to combine them all into one primary form.

    I'm just wondering what the impact will be on data download.

    I usually like to collect all of my registrants and their information one big spreadsheet, downloaded directly from my registration form in JotForm. If I make multiple forms, will the data be collected separately--separate data for each separate form? Or will everything collected in the primary form be downloadable from that primary form?

    I hope this question makes sense!

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Loading multiple forms into a single forms using iFrames does not allow for the forms to interact.  They are still separate forms within their own frames.  If you submit one of the iFrame embedded forms, it would be the same as submitting that form by itself.  The data is collected for that single form and stored only in that form.  The main form that the other forms would be embedded to would not receive any of the data submitted through the other forms.
