When you organize fields in this manner and the user is viewing the form on a small mobile device, the fields within the first split are listed before the fields in the second split. In this example, the Asset tag, State, Serial number, and Substate field are listed before any of the fields below them. You can also create elements that span the form at the top of the form.
