Importing Forms Central forms

    Asked on January 28, 2015 at 06:50 PM


    I tried out the form import tool you sent to import Forms Central forms. (see screenshot) This tool probably will be great for importing any accumulated data - but I was hoping for a way to import an actual form rather than having to recreate it in JotForm. Will you be working on a tool for that?

    I did try a similar tool in Formstack and it works to a point, bringing in all the text and questions but not in the same format.

    I think JotForm has better formatting tools and would probably allow us to reconfigure our form as we like, but we are hoping not to have to re-type all the text, questions, logos, etc into JotForm to get started. Do you think an import tool for the actual form itself is possible?

    Thanks for all your effort on this,

    Linda Dowlen

    Thank you for providing us more details.

    We have  provide a custom Import Tool to properly import the adobe forms to Jotform.

    Click on this link


    I recommend that you also check the article about this in our JotForm Blog


    After using the Import Tool, it might take a while (depending also on number of your forms) for the import to be completed. You will be notified via your email account also once they are available in your My Forms page.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    The reason it is taking some time is that we are running them in batches. We run a batch of imports, (usually 50) review the forms for mistakes, send emails to users so they can also review them, and then we fix any problems we see. Only after we fix all of the problem, we run the next batch. Our goal is to perfect our import software. 

    Sorry that is taking so much time but it is really for the best.

    Great news Linda! Our tool that would allow you to import your forms or even your forms and their data is now available, ready and waiting to be directed.

    Please tell it how it can help you and get your Adobe forms and data, or just forms transferred to our system.

    All you need is a mouse and a minute or two of your time and all of the rest is done by our system.

    Take a look at our blog for more details on this here: Import Both Your Forms and Responses in a Single Step from Adobe FormsCentral

    In case you are wondering just how the import looks when JotForm does it, take a look at these imported templates - it was imported by 'old tools' we made 2 weeks ago ;)
