    Can I "re-migrate" my FormsCentral forms/data?

    Asked by rebekah405 on April 08, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    I had used the import tool when I was exploring the transition to JotForm from Adobe Forms Central. Now, that we have finalized our decision and are preparing to formally transition to JotForm I want to know the best way to update our responses since we've had active forms on adobe collecting data while we've been researching.

    What would be the best way to "re-migrate" all our forms/data?

    Would it be best to delete everything from JotForm and use the import tool again? (I really don't want to manually import responses for our forms since that is a bit time-consuming). Or, would it be best to just set up a new account and use the import tool once more? 

    Please advise.

    Hi,

    You can definitely import you data again.  Whatever works best for you is acceptable on our end.  If you would like to create a new account and import your forms and data to the new one or if you would like to just run the import tool again from your current account.  The import tool is usable as many times as you need from each account. 

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you! If I run it again, will it duplicate the forms and responses or will it replace them? Or, do I need to delete them all prior to running the tool again?

    If you import them again it will place new copies of the forms into your account in addition to the ones already there.  You would have two different sets of the same forms.  You do not need to delete them but there will be duplicates if you don't.
