    I want to use a set of questions from a form... in a different, longer form.

    Can I copy the set of questions from one to the other?

    Or can I clone the old form.. and insert that copy in the new one?

     

    thanks

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to combine two forms yet. That feature is already in our user wishlist, so it'll probably be available in a future release. We cannot give a definite time for implementation though.

    May I ask for the URLs of these forms though? I can imagine a workaround but I'll have to test it first. If you can give me the form URLs, I'll go ahead and test if it's possible, then get back to you with the (hopefully favorable) results.

    Neil, thanks for the quick response. 

    The URL for the "source" form:   http://form.jotform.us/form/22765940470154

    I want to copy and re-use the section with header "Interests & Activities".  It's six questions with Likert scale responses from "strong NO" to "strong YES".

     

    The URL for the new form, "target" form:   http://form.jotform.us/form/22766265402150

    I want to put that header and those 6 items just before the "OPTIONAL info about you" in this form.

     

    Neil it's just 6 questions.  if you have an easy workaround, great, I'd like to know it for this and future use.

    But if not, it's no biggie to re-create those 6.

    thanks

    Jack,

    I was able to combine the forms using their source codes in a single page hosted on my test domain. However, importing them to the form builder produced a negative result.

    It seems that the only way to move forward is to add the fields one by one. Sorry for keeping your hopes up.
