    copy items/products to another form

    Asked by eiermann on October 01, 2014 at 01:08 PM

    Hi,

     

    I have a long list of items or products in one form that I would like to use in another form. Is there a way to copy them without duplicating the whole form?

    Hi,

    Yes it is possible. You can take advantage of our recently released app "Field Manager" to achieve your requirement: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_manager

    You can also visit http://fieldmanager.jotform.io/

    Field manager app will give you flexibility to copy/clone one or more field from one form to another. Please try this app and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    I just tried. Unfortunately it doesn't work for the products itself. It only copies the PayPal payment option and says please run the wizard. But the items are not copied :(

    I just tested this too and you are correct, payment form information is not passed along.  I tested this for widgets too and their data is also not passed.  I believe this has to do with how they are loaded into the form separately from the regular fields.  For this reason unfortunately, I do not believe the data can be copied from one form to another, short of copying the whole form.
