    Unable to clone or import form

    Asked by Ivo77 on April 27, 2015 at 09:00 AM

    Hello,

     

    If I want to import an existing form from a website, it gives an error!

    How is this possible or what is the problem?

    Hi there,

    I checked the webpage and I've found out that it is not a JotForm form. The import or clone form would only work with a JotForm forms. It can copy a direct link form or form that is embedded on a webpage.

    If you look at the error - "Form not found: Form Id is missing or irregular". It means that there is no JotForm form ID found on the URL or in the webpage.
