So, my last blog showed you about Page Breaks, but you can add more cool functions to make your forms more dynamic. The tool I am going to show you is the ‘Explorer Label’. The Explorer Label works like a table of contents; it allows the user to navigate from page to page, without going through every page in order to get there.
We’ve made a simple form with the addition of Explorer Labels.
There are two ways of using the Explorer label;
• Add one at the top of the form, which will pick up all the page breaks
• Add an Explorer label after each page break, so you can add further information about each individual page
Right, let’s make the form!
The basic form I’ve made has some text boxes, but on the first example I’ve just added one Explorer Label at the top of the form after the first Page Break. You have to add a formula for this so it starts referencing the Page Breaks.
The second example has an Explorer Label after each Page Break. Each Explorer Label has a formula which is basically a description of the page. I’ve just put 1st, 2nd and 3rd but you add whatever you like.

Your Explorer Label should look something like this;
