Fields with several instances

Forms may contain recurring objects, i.e. fields or field groups that occur multiple times and contain similar information, e.g. names of children, account numbers, etc. Fields with several instances are created for such objects.

Any field can have several instances. Their regions can be located at a distance from one another or even on different pages. Instances of the same field have identical properties. Field instances are exported to separate files or database tables.

You can create several instances for a field group if the form has recurring groups.

Show example

To create a field with several instances, proceed as follows:

  1. Create a field
  2. Highlight it, right-click in the field region and from the shortcut menu select New Instance...
  3. Move the region image to the required location on the page.
