Repeatable sections are not efficient when working with large data sets.
As the number of entries in the section grows, the performance of the app drops off drastically. At 200-300+ entries, selecting and loading an item in my repeatable section can take 4-5 seconds, and then another 5+ seconds to save changes to that time (video available!) As the number of entries increases, the response time drops off even further, and some strange bugs start to manifest on the iOS app when I get to 500+ entries (changes not saving, items visually (but not functionally) duplicating, the order of items in the section not being preserved, etc.)
My users also express frustration with having to "drill down" into individual repeatable section entries just to check off a single checkbox. This is less of an issue with small data sets where the performance is good, but on large data sets its extremely frustrating with the slow down.
Affected Users: Anybody using repeatable sections, especially with large data sets.
Environment: iOS (to a lesser extent, Windows), untested on Android
Create a "Table" section that functions like a limited-feature repeatable section (without any question types that wouldn't work in a table format). Just the ability to interact with checkboxes, text boxes, and dropdowns in a "Table" view would be a massive productivity increase for my users.
This is a similar request to one made in 2014: https://support.prontoforms.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/208286898-Add-Table-Data-Grouping-or-Nesting-Support
Repeatable Sections was the answer to that request, but as I said above, I don't believe repeatable sections are the ideal solution for large table-based data sets where user interaction is usually limited to a simple pass/fail checkbox or other limited data entry.
