  • Section
    • The "Section" option is a "field" that allows you to separate your forms into different areas, each with its own fields. It is ideal for separating information with large various forms of data to enter.
    • When you create a section you can enable the "Repeatable" option that allows you to clone/duplicate all the fields you create within this section, so once inside the application a button will appear inside the section that says "repeat". This is ideal for repetitive workflows.”
