    Editing multiple forms at once

    Asked by Chardon on April 30, 2015 at 01:30 PM


    I have about 30 forms which all have the same 9 drop down menus in them.. Whenever I have to update those menus to add a new client or item I have to do it 9 times in each of the 30 forms. Is there a sort of centralized drop down I can use that will update across all of my forms? Let me know, Thanks!! :)

    That way I could edit one form instead of 30!!!

    Hi, Chardon, 

    If you have 30 different forms, cloning the forms would not solve the issue. 

    What I would suggest for you to do is use the Field Manager App.

    With the use of the Field Manager App, you would be able to edit the field on just one form and copy the field into the other forms.

    Please click this link to open Field Manager App and click the Manage Field button below.

    I hope this helps. Should you need further assistance regarding this matter, kindly let us know and we will be glad to help you anytime.


    Thank you for using JotForm.


    Kind regards.
