Issue

Using a single view multiple times on a form causes the form rules pointing to the views to behave inconsistently, because of the naming convention being incorrect.

Symptoms

The rule naming conventions are not lining up with the used views in a form.

Resolution

This is as per design, K2 sees all the views as one since it is the same view that is being used over and over again, renaming the views inside on the form does not change the way K2 sees them as the views are still seen as the original view contained in the form. The suggestion is to rather perform a "save as" on the view and then use the saved as views as separated views inside of the form to avoid this type of behavior.
