Copying forms

You have probably experienced the situation where you need a new form but you already have a similar form stored in your system. Perhaps only a few content items need to be swapped out or added.

Copying an existing form can simplify your workflow significantly, because you do not need to redesign the entire form again. You simply copy a similar form and then you only need to rework the areas that are different in your new form.

To copy a form, proceed as follows:

  1. Click Forms on the top menu bar.
  2. Then click New form at the top right of the screen.
    The Create form dialog window appears.
  3. Click Copy form. The Copy form dialog window appears.
  4. Click in the Copy of field to search for the form that you want to copy.
  5. Enter a name for the new form.
  6. In the Language drop-down list, change the language for your form, as required.
  7. Optional: You can also include a comment in the Comment field. This is only used internally and not shown to form users. This gives you a single point of storage for notes for form editors, for example, which are then always accessible.
    The comment can be viewed under General after clicking Settings on the form edit page at the top of the screen.
  8. Optional: Select the folder to save the form into. You can also create a new folder, as required. For instructions, please see this link.
    Whether or not you save the form to a specific folder, you can always find your new form under Forms in All forms.
  9. To finish copying the form, click Copy form.

You have now created a copy. Your new form opens in the Editor where you can now start working on it.

Your new form can be found under Forms, in the default All forms folder. If you selected or created a save folder for your form while creating it, you will also find the new form in that folder.
