    How to transfer the submission of one form to another form

    Asked by cwc_obgyn on October 05, 2016 at 01:52 PM

    I need to delete a form and transfer the submission of that form to another form. It's exactly the same form,  just an additional button at the bottom that allows the user to upload additional PDFs. You'll find the form under Patient Center, Patient Forms, Well Woman/New Patient (it's the Cornerstone Women's Care History). Thanks! Cindy

    You can also check the Import Data app 

    Since it has the same form layout, you can get the data from the original form and then use the output CSV data to import it to the new form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance on this.

Can you please help me? it gives on giving me errors even if the forms are identical, since i cloned them. Thank you in advance!

    Hello CPIP,

    What error message you see when you try to import data?

    Please let us know the form name / form ID of all 5 forms from which you want to import the submissions. We will help you in creating the submission excel which you can use to import the data.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
