Is there a maximum size that the forms can be? I am creating a very large form and wonder if there will be any performance or loading issues as the form gets larger. Would it be better if I split the form into several smaller forms? What is your recommendation?
I am a developer for Cognito Forms.
There is not a technical limit, as we have been developing the underlying frameworks for Cognito Forms for over five years, and have spent a lot of time optimizing them for extremely large forms. For example, all of the calculations and dynamic behavior on our forms are event-driven, so calculations and HTML rendering are only triggered for the fields that are dependent on the fields that change.
If you have a really long form, I recommend using page breaks instead of separate forms. We specifically implemented page breaks in a way that maximizes performance by only rendering the page that is visible (versus rendering all of them and hide/show). This will improve the performance of really long forms.
