    I have several dates listed in a section and would like to copy those to new forms.

    You can clone a form (right click on a form on the my forms page and then select Clone Form) but you cannot copy part of a form to another form, or join two forms into one. Unfortunately, we do not have such feature. You will have to manually add those questions to the forms.

    I would *LOVE* to be able to copy elements I have already defined into another form.

    For example, I have been developing several order forms and when they change I have to remake all of the forms.

    Not fun.

    I am sure most users face this issue in one way or another.

    Please put this on the development board.

    I understand your plight of having to remake all the other forms when you implement a change to one. I have submitted a report ticket to have this added in our feature request list but as usual, we cannot promise a lead time when this will be implemented or if it will be implemented at all. Our development team receives requests everyday, but they do not have the luxury of time to have every request granted. Each feature request should go through proper deliberation.

    Anyway, If you're using similar forms in different websites though, we have a workaround for that. You can use a single form, deploy it to different websites and still be able to find out which website came from. You can refer to this thread for more information.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions.
