    Can I copy a form field with conditions from one jotform to another?

    Asked by southernstar on August 29, 2016 at 11:25 AM

    I have an office level drop down where an individual could select an office they are located in. Then, based on those conditions it would go to the manager or group of managers within that office location. Unfortunately, I have to add this to additional forms and would really like to just copy and paste that condition from one to another. I could clone the form but this form is already built and I need to add this field to it. Anyway to do this easily without having to re-add all the notifications etc..

    Sorry but the only way to sort of "copy conditions" is to clone the form. Cloning copies everything (the entire form itself, the conditions and notifications too).

    Just in case this would in lessening the workload, we have an app called Field Manager but this only allows you to copy form fields (conditions not included) from one form to another. Sadly, there's just no way to copy conditions from one form to another, that's something that you can only do within the form itself (e.g if you're copying/duplicating some fields, you can duplicate the associated conditions too)

    Related guide: How-to-Manage-Multiple-Fields 

    If it's relatively a few conditions (e.g. less than 10 or so) then I recommend you just set them up manually on your new form. If it's way more than that, then cloning the form would be more practical, then just delete the unnecessary fields.

    Hope this helped somehow.
