Large Survey in Powerapps with 100+ questions

Would it be possible to know what is the best appraoch to create a large survey with offline mode in mobile Powerapps with 100+ quesitons?

i want to use Collections and reuse controls. but each question will have its own picklist, comments and date.

 

i am trying to find best way to do this along with offline capability. I am hoping to use Sharepoint List as data source.

Hi @jshah thanks for posting this question in the community. If you want to go the SharePoint List route, check out the following video:

This is going to be a very challenging app to create. With at least 3 fields per question, you're looking at 300 fields in the list. So first, I'd go double check to confirm that a single list will support this.

 

Also, having that many fields in a single form makes powerapps extremely challenging to work with. PowerApps was designed to create mobile apps, which typically have a few fields per screen. Yes, it can handle more than that, but that fact that it wasn't designed to do so makes it painful. For example, moving a bunch of fields around on a large form is slow and tedious. Even simply finding a field on a large form is difficult.

 

I'd recommend breaking the form into sections, and configure a separate SP list and PowerApps screen for each section. This will make reporting more challenging, but with 5 sections, that would be ~60 fields per list, which is far more managable than a list with 300.
