Anchor Points on the Application Layout
We are building a security questionnaire with around 45-50 questions and these questions will be grouped by sections (10 sections in total with each section having 5 questions).
We understand that having these many questions provides for a long navigational layout where users have to scroll to go through each and every question.
To avoid that, we were wondering if there would be a way to add anchor points on the page (similar to the anchor tag in HTML, e.g. Go to Top, Go to Section #1) where users click on these links that takes them the respective sections.

If you don't go with David's tab idea, you can do this by placing a Text Box with HTML enabled or a Custom Object on the layout, and within it put the following code:
Then up at the top of the form, or wherever you choose, you can create another Text Box and put in the following code to jump to the anchor:
<a href="#MyAnchorName">Jump to MyAnchorName</a>
Note that anchors like this will not work across tab sets, as the data in the non-default tab is not loaded until the tab is clicked.
One of the users had posted this helpful back to top custom object here:
<a href="#master_DefaultContent_rts_p" style="display:scroll;position:fixed;bottom:20px;right:35px;"> <img src="/Main/company_files/50000/icons/Back to top.jpg" height="35" width="35"></img> </a>
A follow-up to my earlier question - If there is a cross-reference in an application, you add a new record in the cross-referenced application and save the record, why does Archer take you to the top of the page (and not leave the user at the cross-reference field)?
