    If I duplicate my form, will the form create different IDs?

    Asked by xagolab on December 06, 2016 at 08:11 AM

    I have a very basic form that I created called "Test".  It has email address, captcha, and submit button that attaches a file when submitted and sends the email with attachment to requester.

    So far this "Test" form works, although I haven't made any fine detail tweaking yet.  But I need to duplicate this form at least 25 times with different attachment.

    My question is:  If I duplicate it, will the form create different ID's and other unique identifiers for each form from each other, other than me labeling each form different so that I can visually identify them?

    Thank you in advance

    Thank you for contacting us.

    If you duplicate your form, the new form will have different form ID.

    Also, you can rename your duplicated forms in order to identify them as you can the following screenshot:

    You can rename them with a number in order to avoid possible confusion. For example "Test 1", "Test 2", ... 

    If you need any clarification, let us know.

    As mentioned above, I had everything working on my test form (LOL) but somehow I forgot where I had setup to send an attachment, when the submit button is clicked.

    I had made some changes and I forgot where I had set up to attach an attachment when the submit button is clicked.  Sorry
