    Default form preference values

    Asked by Tom Noblesse on July 06, 2011 at 10:06 AM

    Is there a way to set default values for the following options. So that they do not have to be set on every new form.

    - Send post data after redirecting
    - Thank you custom URL

    Hi Tom

    While there's no method explicitly set out in the form builder to do that (at least, not to my knowledge) perhaps the best way would be to create a form and configure all its settings the way you would like the defaults to be, save the form and use it as a template for all subsequent forms. In other words, each time you want to create a new form, clone the template form and then edit the clone to suit.

    Shortcut: Make the template form a favorite by clicking the star so that it turns yellow and the next time you want to create a form, go to your Favorites link instead of going through the cloning process detailed in the tutorial at the link in the previous paragraph, when you load the My Forms page, just click Favorites > right-click the template form > click Clone Form as shown below:


    It's the best I can presently devise but others may have better solutions.

    Should you require additional help with this or anything else related to your form(s) please let us know. Our team will be glad to assist in whatever way we can.
