What is the difference between a group and a question list?

When should I use a Group in Form Builder and when should I use a Question
List?

Thanks

Simon

Hi Simon. The difference is that all questions within a Question List will
be shown on the same screen, whereas those in a Group will not be. A
Group’s function is purely as an organizational tool for the app builder,
for questions that logically belong together in some way from a data
perspective, but which you still want to show to the user separately.

Hi,
My understanding is that a Group is a sort of a bigger container. Within
the group you can have a Question List, Repeat Group and individual
questions. I haven’t tried that with Question List though.
