What is a Subform?

A subform allows you to group questions in different categories. This can be used to either break up a really big form or separate sections of a specific form.

On Builder:

App UI:

Click "View" and you're brought to a separate section in your form.


Name the Subform.

Advanced Settings:


This allows you to give a hint to help people answer a specific question. This will be displayed below the field, on the device.


How the field is identified in the form (the name of the field). You can also provide custom identifiers for long questions, to simplify template creation. Even though longer identifiers take up more space on the template, the data pertaining to that placeholder may not use all the given space and could possibly throw your template out of bounds.


  • Always (always shows in the form and returns answers in submissions)

  • Only When (only shows in the form and returns answers in submissions under certain conditions – decided upon by you when you click the “Set Rule” button that appears)

This concludes our overview of the Subform. If you have any questions or comments feel free to send us a message at support@devicemagic.com or leave us a comment below.
