What is a Subform?
Subforms can be used to create sub-sections of a larger form. They should take form elements that would originally be on the Parent Form and add them to a separate form that will be linked to the Parent Form. You can find more information about Subforms here.
iForm TIP: When creating Subforms, we suggest using a naming convention for the Table name to show the relationship. This also keeps the forms together in Form Builder. For example, add the letter p to the end of your Parent Form name and the letter s at the end of your Subform name.
How do I add a Subform element to my Parent form?
To add a subform element to your form, please follow the instructions below.
STEP 1. With your form loaded in the Form Builder, click the Subform button from the left-hand menu.
STEP 2. On the right-hand side, you'll see the element properties. Enter the name of your element.
PLEASE NOTE: If you check the Based on Label option, it will create a data column based on the Label on the element.
STEP 3. From the Smart Paging tab, select Subform List.
STEP 4. Choose the form you want to use as your Subform.
STEP 5. Choose your subform Link Mode.
- SINGLE: This will allow the user to only submit one subform record per Parent form record.
- MULTIPLE: This will allow the user to submit unlimited subform records per Parent form.
STEP 6. Choose whether you want the subforms to show in Separate Table View. The Separate Table View will allow for the Subform records to show in their own record view on the user's device.
STEP 7. Save your form.
PLEASE NOTE: To remove the form being used as a Subform from the user's device (so they can't collect data on it separate from the Parent form) unassign Collect rights from the user.
