    Hello Ralph,

    Unfortunately we do not have any migration app available yet which is migrate or import form with complete settings from FormsCentral.

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team to create an app to migrate forms from FormsCentral. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Please be noted that creating form in JotForm should not be difficult. We have a very easy to use form editor and I am sure you will like it. Please take a look at our "Form Templates" section where we have thousands of form templates already available:



    Thank you!

    Our developers are already working on a tool to import the forms and data from Adobe FormsCentral. It is not going to perfect, but we will do what we can.

    Here is a link for you to see that we have taken this seriously: http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/

    Please expect an announcement here when this is finished.

    We are currently building tools to make the whole process easy in a single swap. You will just enter your username and password and we will transfer your forms and the data on your forms automatically. Would you like to be a beta tester for this FormsCentral migration tool?

    If you do please let us know your FormsCentral username and password? Send them to aytekin@jotform.com please. 


    If you don't want to share this information, you can also transfer your forms using this page:

    I have been able to import my forms and data from Forms Central.  Thank you!

     I am having difficulty, however, with EDITING the form that was imported.  I make my edits in JotForm and Save, but when I pull up a preview, the edits are no longer there.  As I am going through the edit process,it looks like it is going through but for some reason none of the edits are saving.  Please advise what I am doing wrong!!  thanks
