    Can I rename a form and keep the submitted data intact?

    Asked by MerleRBC on May 26, 2015 at 02:28 PM
    Once this form is correct, I then want to swap this clone with my main Merle Norman RBC Call Report form which is located at: https://secure.jotformpro.com/MerleRBC/call WITHOUT destroying any of the previous data already submitted for this form. Can I save the original Merle Norman RBC Call Report as another file name and keep the originally submitted data intact?

    I understand that you want to use the cloned JotForm after making changes using the same form name as call. This can be done by renaming the custom URL of the original form to some other name and then add the custom URL call to the cloned JotForm from the Form Embed wizard.

    If you try to add the same custom URL to the cloned JotForm, you'll receive an error message that the name already in use as shown below.

    Since you are renaming the URL here, the submission data received on the original form will be remained with the same form and the new submissions received after renaming the custom URL will be stored on the cloned JotForm.

    Hope this information helps. Let us know if you mean to ask something different. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks!
