Section Visibility WILL NOT work on the Mobile App if you set the section as Enable Mobile Page Break = No

You can set up section visibility for any sections in a form to hide or show based on specific settings

The example in the image here shows that Section 4 (and any fields in it) will only appear if the Yes/No field is selected as Yes. This section will be hidden on the Main application and on the installed application (online and offline) until Yes is selected.

However, if you set up this Section NOT to appear as a separate Page Break on the Mobile Application the section visibility settings will not work

This section is set to only show when the Yes/No field = Yes. However, on the mobile application, this section's Mobile Page Break setting is set to "No". This means the fields will NOT appear on the Mobile Application in this section, they will appear with the fields from a previous section that is set up with a Mobile Page Break (e.g Section 3). This means the fields in section 4 will appear with the fields in Section 3. Hence, the visibility settings for Section 4 will no longer work!!!!

On the Main Application, or the Installed Version, this Page will appear with the section hidden (as expected)

On the Main Application, or the Installed Version, this Page will appear with the section hidden (as expected)

Section 4 is hidden because Yes is not selected (as expected). This is on the online and installed versions.

However, on the mobile application, the Section 4 field appears with the "Section 3 Break" section, and the fields from section 4 are NOT hidden

However, on the mobile application, the Section 4 field appears with the "Section 3 Break" section, and the fields from section 4 are NOT hidden

The fields from section 4 now appear with the fields from section 3, so the visibility setting for Section 4 cannot be retained.

If you want a field to retain the same visibility settings as the section, then you MUST set up EACH field in that section to have the same Visibility settings

To ensure the fields in section 4 are hidden correctly (because you have set up section 4 to NOT have a mobile page break), open each field and set the visibility settings to be the same as the Section. This will mean the section will be hidden correctly on the main and installed applications, AND the fields will be hidden on the Mobile application.

The example in the image here shows the fields in section four are hidden correctly once the field visibility setting are updated

If you have any question then please contact your distributor. It is CRITICAL that you test your forms on an iPad to ensure they are working correctly.
