    Gravity Forms to Jotforms

    Asked by manonatelier on August 06, 2015 at 05:47 PM

    I'm in the process of converting all of my WordPress clients' forms from my longtime form go-to, Gravity Forms to Jotforms.  

    Do you have any way of automating this process, importing/exporting, script, etc.

    Please say yes, as I have many, many, many client forms to convert.

    Thank you!

    Hello manonatelier,

    Unfortunately we do not have any tool to import Gravity forms with formatting and conditions. Have you tried our normal clone feature already? Do try it out and I believe it should clone the basic HTML version of gravity form without conditions or formatting. The following guide should help you how to clone form:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    Let me forward a request to our back end team to find out if it possible to create such tool. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!

    Cloning by importing was the first thing I tried and unfortunately, didn't work at all.  Got this error message:  

    "Form not found: Form Id is missing or irregular"

    Is there a way to private message the form to you so you can see what you can do?

    I would like to apologize, it is possible that the form wasn't recognized as one of JotForm's that is why it gave you that message. 

    I understand that you would like to have the exact same form from Gravity Forms. You can post the link of your form here, on this thread, so we can check it if it is possible to be recreated. 

    My colleague, Ashwin_d, already submitted a request to our developers for them to check if it is possible to create such tool that will import forms from Gravity Tools to JotForm. 

    Thank you.

    Herer it is:


    If you're able to come up with something soon, it would help immensely.

    For this particular form, I'm updating the website to a more modern design and wanted to incorporate Jotforms into it by end of the month.

    Unfortunately it does not seem to be possible to simply clone it - I am receiving the same error as you did.

    Now I see that this seems as something that might be possible soon since a developer is assigned to take a look at this (although that this should not be seen as a guarantee that this will be possible at any time) so we would need to wait for that moment if it becomes available.

    Looking at the form, it seems practically the same as the simple fields added on jotform, so it is a rather simple drag and drop (which I know means a lot of dragging and dropping for a lot of different forms), but it should be possible to do manually as well rather quickly.

    Now as soon as this feature becomes available (if it does), we will update you about it here so that you can start re-importing the forms right away. :)
