Breaks are used to divide the content on a form into pages, or sections that can be conditionally shown or hidden.
This is a handy way to:
- Have entire groups of questions be shown or hidden based on how the form is answered - that is, to apply logic to whole areas of a form rather than just one question at a time.
- Have media, text, questions or anything on your form, broken into distinct chunks to make long forms more approachable.
How do I add a break?
- Click on the line where you wish the break to be, regardless if its a section or page break.
- Go to the left of this line and select the ‘Break’ icon to insert the break line (note that this line will not appear on the live form, it’s just to help you visualize where the breaks will be).
- To configure the break, go to the right of the line to the ‘Configure’ cog wheel. Here you can now choose:Whether you want the content beneath the break to be on a new page, by selecting “On a new page”.Or to be displayed conditionally on the same page, by selecting “On the same page”.
- You can then configure conditional logic for the Page or the Section, by turning on the toggle below and setting up your conditions.
- Click “done” and save your form!
How do page breaks work?
Page breaks appear as a blue line in the editor. A page break indicates that all content beneath the line will appear on a new page** until either another page break, or the end of the form**.
When conditional logic is set on a page break, it is used to determine when the page is included. This means that as the form is answered, the total number of pages can change. As every form must be submittable, this means that the submit button will appear on the last included page that has a question on it.
When a person is filling out the form, they will not be able to move to the next page until all required questions are answered on the current page.
How do section breaks work?
Section breaks appear as a red line in the editor. A section break indicates that all content beneath the line will be included in that section**, until another break (page or section), or the end of the form**. In this way, section breaks are really contained inside the page.
When conditional logic is applied to a section, it is used to determine whether the content in that section is visible or not.
There are several options available to customize the pagination buttons.
- Make sure you have at least one page break inserted.
