Page

For aesthetic and convenience reasons, especially when using tablets and smartphones, you can organize your form into separate pages using the Page tool. Simply drag the tool into the form, give it a name, and then add one or more form fields to add them to that page (by dragging them beneath the Page tool in the form builder). Do this for as many pages as you wish.

In the animated example below, a form has been divided into four separate pages. The mobile user taps the Signature & Send drop-down menu item to jump to that page.

In addition to the drop-down menu, you can also add action buttons that jump to individual pages. In the animated example below, an action button has been inserted into a form. The mobile user taps the Jump to Signature button to jump to that page.

Note that you may modify the standard report settings so that pages are not printed if they contain no data. To do this, select the Hide empty pages option in the report settings.

Note that, after creating individual pages, you can quickly jump to a page in the form builder by using the Jump to drop-down list (highlighted in red, below):

Properties

Page name: Enter up to 20 characters to assign the page a name. If a page name is not entered, then it will be assigned a sequential number, which will be used for navigation in the page navigation drop-down menu.

Automatically return to form view at the end of the page if using question view: This option automatically returns doForms to Form View when the user completes the last question on the page in Question View. This option is handy for letting users review their work after completing the page.

Note that Question View is a legacy view that allows the user to view one question at a time on a device. This is very useful on devices with very small screens, especially when trying to enter data into a table or other container that require a lot of panning to the right.

Hide: These settings allow you to hide the page from users in specific situations. The settings are as follows:

  • View data edit: Hides this field from a web portal user when editing a submitted form through the 'View data' tab

  • View data new: Hides this field from a web portal user when creating a new form through the 'View data' tab.

  • Dispatch edit: Hides this field from a web portal user when editing a submitted form through the 'Dispatch' tab.

  • Dispatch new: Hides this field from a web portal user when creating a new dispatch through the 'Dispatch' tab.

  • Mobile: Hides this field from a mobile user when creating a form.

  • Web App: Hides this field from a web app user when creating a form.

  • In PDF and Print: Hides this field when the form is converted to PDF or printed.

  • Form Links: Hides this field on forms that are sent as form links.
