    Can I save a copy of a form into another JotForm account?

    Asked by LDMedia on September 22, 2011 at 04:54 AM

    On occasion I have created forms for other people (employers, friends, clubs) using my jotform account to show them all the cool stuff jotform can do, finding that doing the job for them once overcomes the resistance to try new things.

    A number of these people have gone on to be regular jotform users. 

    I'm happy to promote jotform as a wonderful useful service, and it does alleviate the physical pain I feel when obliged to fill out another survey monkey survey, but generally also means that I end up with random forms sitting around in my account cluttering up the place. 

    Would it be possible to create and save a form then transfer ownership to a different account? 

    Maybe even to send ownership of a form along with an email inviting someone new to the service? (i.e. 'register with this email address to claim your form')

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for promoting our service.

    You can indeed transfer ownership, or more like "import" a form from your account to another account, but it has to be done on the target account.

    For more information on how to do that, please click the link below:

    I am not quite sure if "sending form ownership" is possible, but you can try creating forms under a guest account (not logged in), add the person's email address in the notification set up, and then have them register an account using the same e-mail address.

    Ideally, the  form you created should be transferred to the newly registered account. If it did not get transferred, then there might have been a couple of checks (IP and session, perhaps) that prevented the transfer.
