    How do you migrate form data from one account into another?

    Asked by zchan on May 12, 2015 at 11:11 AM

    Hi, we are looking to migrate some forms from other smaller accounts into a group account to make things easier. What is the easiest way to do this and are there any downsides to doing this that we should be made aware of?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Zoe

    If you wish we can move the forms for you. For security reason the request should be made from the accounts that have the forms, telling us to which account you want them to be moved and which forms. 

    I'm not sure if it's a downside but after moving the forms that "group account" will own the forms and will decide if they are active or not, delete submissions, among other things. 

    If this "group account" belongs to the same institution it should not be a problem. 

    Another option might be to clone the forms into that group account and then using the Import App to import the submissions:


    But in this case, if the original form is added to a website you'll need to replace it with the clone.

    Let us know if we can assist you further.

    Hi Carina, 

    Thank you, this will be very helpful. We may indeed need to do this. Before we go down this route though, I have a question. If Jotform migrates the forms over to the group account, will the integrations to Google need to be re-linked? Also, would it be possible to test the migration with 1 form first before going ahead?

    There's no need to re-integrate as the integration in the form(s) will be kept :). 

    Sure, why not. Just please let us know the form URL and the other account where the form will be moved to.
