    Different versions of a form

    Asked by psauve on March 08, 2016 at 04:37 PM


    I've been buidling a form as a proof of concept and I'm now being asked if it's possible to create a simplified version of that form. The simplified means that about one tenth of the 100+ fields need to be used if I choose a specific radio button option at the top of the form. I don't even want to consider going in each field and adding a Show\Hide condition based on that. I think it's too much work and maintenance in the long term. Are there other options you can suggest?

    Hi Paul,

    If I understand correctly, you want to make a Template form so that it can be used multiple times or be distributed.

    You can share your form as template in the Form Templates Gallery.

    user guide: Sharing-a-Form-in-the-Form-Templates-Gallery


    You can make multiple versions of a Form by cloning it.

    Then, create different version using the Field Manager tool.

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.
