    Form builder in a multi-tenant CMS

    Hello there,

    We’ve used Umbraco as a multi-tenant CMS for a couple of years now and it’s working really well! Recently we ran into a new challenge, which we wanted to share in case someone in the friendly community might have a suggestion on. Appreciate there probably isn’t a simple fix, however, would be interested to hear alternative ideas.

    In essence, we’re using Umbraco as a multi-tenant CMS in a situation where tenants are expected to create lots of forms (relatively speaking). This means that the total number of forms in the system is relatively large (currently 1285 and expected to keep growing). This makes certain operations slow (e.g. listing forms is already quite slow). Also, because we need to keep each tenants' forms separated, and the default seems to be for forms to be visible to all users, we need to create and maintain (in code) quite a lot of forms permissions entries and this slows down other operations (like creating new forms). This leads to a sub-optimal user experience for people creating forms, as there’s a significant delay (i.e. 50 seconds+) when loading or adding forms to the system.

    We don’t seem to have a solution for this, apart from the idea of using a different / building our own form-builder, which, as you can imagine, is not the most appealing option. We’d much rather keep using Umbraco forms. We're currently on Umbraco v7.8 and Umbraco forms v6.0.5.

    Apologies for the long message.

    Look forward to hearing any thoughts / feedback.

    Many thanks, Robert
