    Will any of the field or data on my jotform be affected if it is cloned?

    Asked by richmondyoungwriters on December 30, 2014 at 09:36 AM

    I recently received info about how to clone a form so I can add "code100" that will bypass the Paypal Payment function on the Spring 2015 registration form for students receiving a 100% scholarship for a class. If I clone the form will it erase/effect the data I've already received from the previous form?

    I see you're inquiring as to what happens to your jotform and its data when it's cloned.

    In short...nothing. It's pretty much like sticking it in a xerox machine to make a copy of it before it was filled in and submitted. None of the submission data is touched. So the original would retain the submissions and the new copy would not have any of that except for the form fields and design that were carried over.
