    I put several conditions on a form. I have 12 other forms that have that same field, with the same drop down options. Can I copy these conditions in other forms if it's the same question and the same answers in the drop down option box? That would save me A LOT of time. Thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    Unfortunately it is not possible to copy only conditions from one form to another. What you can do is to clone your form with conditions and then modify fields that should be different on your cloned (second) form. So if you need 12 forms that all have same conditions, with slightly different fields, you can clone your original form with conditions 11 times and then make changes on fields that should be different. Inside of this guide you can find how to clone an existing form from a URL:

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your response.
    Also, if I want to edit my submissions, is there a way to avoid another
    notification being sent out to the people I have created conditions to be
    emailed when their name from the drop down menu is selected?
    I've created conditions for all these people to be emailed in different
    departments and don't want to have to delete the notification while I make
    edits and clean up my database---and then have to put the conditions back
    in.
    Thanks in advance.
