    Created a FORM, how can I make a backup of form?

    Asked by TechCall on February 06, 2017 at 12:54 PM

    Please explain how to make a backup or copy of a form to PROTECT the hard work in building the form.

    Or, if it gets messed up by a user, how to get the BACK UP copy back in its original form?


    If we like a VERSION 1 of form, how do you make a copy of that form to start modifying it?


    What is the purpose of ARCHIVE?  If you archive the form, it puts it in that folder and DISABLES the live form.

    You can clone your form to make a backup of form.

    You can also use form revision history to revert your form to previous version.

    How to view form revision history

    Archived form will be disabled. Purpose can be to remove it from My forms folder if you are currently not using it, but you do not want to delete it or you do not which that it is shown inside of My form Folder. Also it can be used if you want to lower the number of used forms. Free account can have 5 active forms and archived forms will not be counted. 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
