Insert a Dynamic Question Table into a Form Template

You can insert a dynamic (non-static) question table into a form template that has not been assigned to a project. Use dynamic question tables to include a series of questions, particularly when there is no finite number of answers and device users need to answer the same questions again with additional answers.

You have already created a form template that has not been assigned to a project.

Dynamic question tables are used to include a series of questions in a row, and they are best used when there is no finite number of answers. Device users can add another row in which to answer the same questions again with additional answers. For example, the table could be an attendance register where you are capturing information such as Forename, Surname, and Organization for an unspecified number of people.

When you are done, close the Form Designer and assign this form template to a project.
