[Status: Not planned] Modular Questions or Nested Forms for Creating Request Forms

Being able to pull questions from a pool of modules for a request form (or nesting other forms) would be a huge help in creating/updating custom forms.

Our company has 40+ spaces, one for each department and collaborative effort. Currently, the only way for a form to place a project/task in the correct space is by creating a dropdown with each of those spaces as an option. If a new space is added, the new option has to be added into the dropdown on every form. 

If it was possible to create one question as a module or separate form that could be nested into a new form, the question would only need to be updated in one location.

In addition to assigning spaces, this kind of option could be related to users, owners, folder locations and adding tasks. IMHO, modules and/or nesting could hugely impact the usefulness of request forms.

Hi @Patrick, thanks for posting your idea!

I checked with the Product team, and for now the suggestion is not planned. It doesn't mean it will never be released! I personally really like the idea and I can see how it can be useful. I'll get back to you here if there's an update.

@Ben Thanks for adding a comment here :)

This is a huge pain point for me as I try to build out complex automation with request forms and blueprints.

Here's my use case:

We have a request form for one-off emails. It includes required fields so I can pass along all the information our team needs to do.

We also have a request form for complete campaigns, which almost always include emails. I would love to be able to check a box that indicates that this campaign will contain an email. That box would trigger a subsequent request form on the next page (the one-off email form). That way I only have to build out the email request form once.

Added an upvote for nested forms. We have a form covering requests across five topics. The landing and submission pages are common for each topic. Each topic contains a series of unique questions and multiple pages within the form. As we're undergoing a redesign effort, we thought it would be easier to design each topic's form independently for two reasons. One, managing the pages and questions becomes easier from a UI perspective. And two, there are topics that relate to some groups and not others and an independent form would allow those groups to provide references (links) directly to that form. It becomes challenging with the common landing and submission pages, but the primary UI challenge is managing the topic's form pages within the larger comprehensive form. Anyway, just a few thoughts since this came up recently in my team's discussions.
