    Can i clone forms from my clients live site to modify and use in test pages on the same domain?

    Asked by henri on September 28, 2015 at 02:04 PM

    Let me ask the question a different way.

    Even though your support has said that no testing is necessary for SHA-256 compliance, my client still wants to test.

    So I need to test the forms on my clients website in the PayPal sandbox and I have all access to JotForm, PayPal, and my clients website.

    My plan is logging into JotFormPro.com using my clients login info and cloning the forms they currently use (setting the properties to enable PayPal Sandbox) and then modifying their production pages (in a test area of their website) and use their modified pages with the "cloned" JotForm forms to run the tests using the PayPal sandbox accounts.

    Does that work or is there a better way to run the test?

    Sorry to be a pain but I don't currently use JotForm and need to get this test done in the most efficient manner possible.  I do plan to use JotForm in the future!

    Thank you

    I think that your plan for testing SHA-256 compliance is the best way to test it.
