    Good afternoon,

    I'm tying to share a form i've designed with a friend of mine so he can make changes based on his requirements/branding.  However for the past two days when selecting 'Share as a template', it begins working and does nothing else...

    Many thanks

    Sharing your form as a template is intended for you to share your form template with the entire JotForm community. Instead of sharing your form through "Share as a Template", you may try adding your friend to your form as a collaborator. Collaborators and the owners of the form can work simultaneously and in real-time. That way you can also see what your friend edits in your form work together.

    You can add a collaborator in your form builder by using, the top right side of the screen, "Add Collaborators" button.

    Then share the link in the pop-up with your friend and she/he can join you and start editing your form.

    Also, here's a guide that explains adding collaborators and the process in detail:
