    Thank you for posting your inquiry, rmccoy.

    Unfortunately, we do not have that feature you're looking for. For every importing and cloning of forms, this only creates a new ID. So You can only either edit the form manually, or change the link where the forms are shared.

    If this idea may help (but not a perfect solution):  In the old form, you can simply add a note where the new form is located or any information that you may provide in it and a submit button. And then set the Thank You page to redirect to that new form after pressing the submit button. This user guide will help you learn about using a specific URL as thank you page after a submission.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
