Reuse a custom field or widget already used in another custom form

  1. Begin creating or editing a custom form, as described in Create or edit a custom form.

  2. With Add a field selected, click Field Library.

  3. Drag the field or widget here you want it in the custom form.

  4. (Optional) Repeat the two previous steps to add any other fields or widgets.

    NOTE

    You can add up to 500 fields and widgets on a single custom form. However, performance degradation can occur when more than 100 exist on a form, depending on its complexity.

    Examples of complex forms include forms with cascading parameters, calculated custom data fields, and multiple value options in a single field.
