    Thank you for contacting us.   

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to copy fields between forms.

    But there are quick ways to duplicate (clone) the targeted form and edit the other copy:

    The reason why you cannot simply copy a field to another is because the relationship between the field and the form is critical to Jotform's database servers. 

    This relationship can only be created accurately (goes to the reliability of your form's functionality) with the creation of a new fields only when you open a form.

    Copying (cloning) an entire form brings you closer to an easy way of copying form fields without compromising on the funtionality of the form.

    I hope this helps.

    Please let us know how we can assist further.
