    Hi Olivia,

    I did see that setting, but I didn't see a way to do what I want.

    Here's my workflow. I have a form I use for three different companies. They are basically the same form with some slight modifications.

    I'd like to update my main form and make copies for my secondary companies. I'd like to replace the old form but use the same url. Is that possible using the url customization you outlined above?

     

    Thanks for your help,

    Steve

    It is not possible to change ID of the form. Each form has it's own unique ID. ID is the number at the end of a form URL https://form.jotform.com/63007324765151 

    If you want to make copy's of you main form you can clone it and then you can modify your cloned forms.

    However new cloned forms will have different ID. 

    If you want to use same ID of your main form I can only suggest you to edit that form. If it is going to be completely different form, you can delete all field from the form and create new form from scratch. However please note that once you delete fields from the form data on submission page for those fields will also be deleted. So I would suggest you to download your submission,before you start editing your form.
