Is there a limit to the number of ConfiForm "submitted" forms that are stored on a single Confluence page?

We would like to use ConfiForms to build out our request forms in Confluence but want to ensure the care and feeding of the application are also taken care of. Two questions:

 

1) Are there any limits to how many submitted forms are stored on a single Confluence page?

2) Have you or users seens issues with multiple submitted form data being stored on a single Confluence page?

 

Many Thanks,

Allison

Each form's data is stored in a separate row in the OS_PROPERTYENTRY table in the database. So, when it comes to performance each form's data is handled on its own as a separate record. I would tend to think the number of forms wouldn't be as much an issue as the amount of data in the forms. If you had 20 forms with 5 records each I don't think you would have any issues. But if you had 20 forms with 20000 records each you would probably not like that page so much. I have a page in our wiki that has five forms on it that are used as configuration for another form and it works just swimmingly.

With version 2 of ConfiForms there is no limits on how much data you can store per form. And each record is saved separately. No big datasets anymore!

Important performance consideration though is HOW MUCH DATA you show to your user.

Imagine a table which outputs like 20 MB of tabular data to your users. Will this be fast? Will this be user friendly?

Our FAQ answers these questions with a bit more details, https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/CONFIFORMS/ConfiForms+FAQ

What you have to consider is how you want to show the data. Showing hundrends and thousands of records on one Confluence page will not give nice user experience anyway, be it form ConfiForms data source or just the static page with thousands of table rows

To update this answer with more actual information. Yes, the FAQ has an answer to that. 

and with version 2 of ConfiForms there is no limits on how much data you can store per form.
