    Hi John,

    Thanks for all of your thoughtful feedback. The closest way I could think of to do this is to use the PDF preview (in the quick links section of the App Settings page on each individual App), which obviously doesn't show all of the logic, or the dispatch creator, which has similar limitations. This would certainly help our Support Team out tremendously as well, and really anyone trying to troubleshoot things. 

    Very interesting request!

    Yes.. testing apps and trying out every possible scenario is very tedious and time consuming. 120 app versions later, users still find conditional branching scenarios that don't work correctly...

    I just counted. My longest app for damage assessments was approximately 80 required/possible pages with looping loop screens and certainly several hundred possible questions. If I had it to do over again, I could probably get it down to 50 by "reusing" questions, but the setup I used just made it easier to keep it all straight in my head.

    It's a "Juggernaut" app! LOL I feel you man!  and every field has 5 conditional branches right?..  I impress myself sometimes when I go back and look at some of the humongous apps that I built; and the users don't appreciate what is going on in the background of these things. All you get is the complaints when it doesn't work right. I started this whole thing with GoCanvas to make my day to day easier but it's turned into a second unpaid full-time job for me on top of my other 6 full time jobs.  Put me in the K.I.S.S. category.. "Keep it simple stupid" and break things into as many bite size pieces as possible is what I do now.
