    If I have a form we already use, and make a clone of it to make changes, is it possible to take all the content from the cloned form and put it into the existing form?

    That's so I won't have to change the link to the form (which is in many places).

    Hello,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to copy & past changes from the clone back to the original.

    You could optimize the changes in the clone and then recreate them on the original form, but keep in mind this IMPORTANT fact:

    Fields that are deleted in a form that already has submissions will delete all entries into that field from the submissions as well. Let's say for example you delete the email field to add an email widget all former entries into that email field will be lost.

    The best was to keep the data is to hide the fields you no longer need on the form.

    You can hide fields via the Advanced tab in the fields settings

    I hope this will help you in optimizing your form.
