    How do I move forms into folders?

    Asked by campustargetrecruiting on June 09, 2015 at 11:48 AM

    I have looked online for help and everything I read says I should be able to drag a form I created into an existing folder. That hasn't worked for me at all. Is there a way to go to Edit Form and then in there somewhere choose a folder to move it to? 

    Also, somewhat related.... there is no way to make new folders in the folder structure.

    The reason why you are unable to create your own forms and folder is because you are still set as a sub account user in your account type. And the forms you are seeing in your list is only shared from a main account holder that added you as his/her sub account user.

    If you would like to create your own forms and folder, you'll need to navigate to your Account->Upgrade->Choose "Free" plan.


    You'll be able to see your own "My Forms" list at the left side bar and you can create your own forms and folder. You can learn more about shared forms here: http://www.jotform.com/help/232-How-to-Share-Forms-with-a-Sub-Account-User. Also, make it would be better that you can coordinate with the owner of the forms, this is because the forms you are seeing is only shared to you, he/she can set permissions on what you can do on those forms.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
