Restrictions on field and form reuse

Suggest edit Updated on December 13, 2021
Applicable to Theme UI-Kit applications

You can reference an existing field or form when you build a new form. By reusing components in your application, you save time and avoid duplication.

The following restrictions apply when reusing a field or form:

  • You cannot change the field type.

  • You cannot change the class of a field group or repeating field group.

  • You cannot change the data type that is associated with a data reference.

  • You cannot reuse single-value fields that are defined in a repeating field group or field group.

If you change the name of a field after you reuse it on a form, your application creates a new field with the new name.
