    Hi Jennyjac,

    Have you already tried using the jotform url as the source url when
    importing the form to the new account? The jotform url for this
    form is the following:

    I was able to clone a complete copy of the form using this.

    Let us know if this works for you.
    Thanks for using JotForm.

    Thanks for your reply. Now I understand. When I read import _from a
    website,_ I assumed I should import from the site where my Jotform
    resides. You might want to specify an example, i.e.

    I do have one more question. Can you require a field to have certain
    entries, like phone number (with required dashes) and email with (or similar), in other words, required @ and required

    Hi Jenny,

    Thanks for confirming and for your follow up question. Yes, JotForm can validate certain fields so that the entries being submitted by the users are not blank and/or are in the correct format. Just make sure that the Validation button found in the toolbar's Setup & Embed tab is switched on.

    Note that for phone numbers, it will only check if the entries submitted by the users are numeric. Whereas, email address validation involves checking if both the ampersand ("@") and dot (".") are present and in the correct order.

    We hope you find this information useful. Thank you for using JotForm!
