    Is there a way to copy and paste multiple form fields.

    Asked by metrocorephone on May 16, 2011 at 01:09 PM

    I'm trying to build a very large site inspection form and the amount of time it's taking is way too long. The form has 100 main questions but each question has additional condition based questions that depend on the answer to the first question. The conditional statements are all very similar so if there was a way that I could copy and paste each of the main questions and include the conditional questions with if/then statements in one shot there would be significant time savings.

    Hi,

    As of now, copying multiple form fields is not possible. There is a way to duplicate each field one by one, though, and that is by right-clicking on the field and then choosing 'Duplicate'.

    Duplicating a field creates a similar field with same properties below the original field. You can then drag each duplicate to the corresponding main question.

    Hope this solution sounds good enough to you. Let me know if you have other questions or concerns. Thank you for using Jotform.

    UPDATE: This has now been implemented.  Select any field, click on the cog, then 'Manage Fields'.  Select the fields you would like to duplicate and then click duplicate.
