    How to copy changes from cloned form to production form?

    Asked by Advolink1 on May 24, 2017 at 08:35 PM

    I cloned my form in an effort to not disrupt the production environment.  I've made all necessary changes and need to implement changes into production form.  Can you please help me understand how to accomplish this?

    I need the changes in https://form.jotform.us/71437811502147 to propogate to the production version located at https://form.jotform.us/71168406898166.  

    Thank you, in advance.

    Hi Denise,

    If the form templates are exactly the same (being a cloned copy) then it will be easier to import the existing submission data of the test form into production form.

    First  you need to export first the submission data of the test form to a CSV file format.


    Then you can use the Import Data app to import the data(CSV file) to the production form.


    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I don't need the submission data, I need the changes to the cloned form implemented to the original form I cloned from.  What part of my question leads you to think I need the submission data copied?

    I apologize for the confusion. I misunderstood the question. Since you mentioned that you already cloned the form, I assumed that both forms were already exactly the same and you needed only the data to be transferred as well.

    From what I understand now, you made changes to the test form after you cloned it already. Which means you only want to update the production form with the changes you did in the test form.

    You can use the Field Manager App to transfer/copy fields from test form to production form. If there were changes in styles and design, you will have to manually apply them to the production form using the Form Designer.
