    Hi -

    I just made my first form on JotForm. What a great resource!! I uploaded a header into the form and it looks great. I'd like to use the same form for another niche audience with a different header. Can I clone the form without have to re-create it again for the second niche? The link to my form is below:

    Absolutely, Karen. You can actually import one of your own forms from its URL in the same manner that you would for anyone else's and then change the header (or any other element, for that matter) to your liking.

    Here's how:

    Open up the form you wish to clone and on the Setup & Share tab, click Embed Form and click the direct link to select it. At this point, you can either right-click it and choose "Copy" form the shortcut menu or hit  CTRL + C (in Windows). Close the Embed Form Wizard and click My Forms (at the top of the window). Now click New Form > Import Form > From a web page > click inside the text box and press CTRL + V to paste the URL that was earlier copied > click Continue.

    You will now have a duplicate form with the same functionality as the other one. The only difference is its title and URL. Make whatever changes you deem necessary, save those changes and you're done.
