    Can you provide us with more information regarding what you would like to do with the Webform builder software?

    Is it that you would like to connect two forms that are made through JotForm and the Webform software?

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for providing us with that information. Yes you will be able to place your JotForm forms in "Coffee Cup". You would need to paste your embed code for your form, after the body tag of your web page, please follow the guide below, if the Embed code doesn't work, you might try other methods as shown in this other guide

    Adding a Form to a Web Page

    1. Click on "Setup & Embed" tab on the form builder toolbar

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    setup and embed

    3. Click "Embed" option



    4. Copy the source code provided.
     
    I hope this helps! Please inform us if you need additional assistance.

    Hello,

    It's possible to clone a form using an existing URL, please refer to this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    The catch here is that you need to publish your form into a website in order to be able to clone it into your JotForm account, also you need to consider that it will clone the fields on that form therefore all the CSS customization will need to recreated using the form editor.

    I suggest that you try first to build your form from scratch using our Form Designer, it's a very powerful tool that allows to build and customize your forms very quickly.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks.

    In addition to what it's been said above so you can have this clearer, Jotform can only import html forms.

    Html forms begin with a <form> tag and have form elements that begin with the <input> tag.
