  • Blakely_Info

    May I share a template I created with just one person or a small group of people? How do I do that please? Thanks!

  • onlineevent

    I cannot delete a form. I didn't realize the template would be made public, I was trying it save it for myself. The "Update Form" and "Unshare Form" buttons are not there for me either.

  • Delysa

    When I follow the steps to unshare...the update and unshare button are not there. It just gives you the option to cancel or share form

  • ReadyforAnythingNails

    I need to delete a template and when I deleted the form and purged my trash, it is still there. Please advise


    I am unable to unshare my form shared as a template. Not getting Unshare option.

  • Minday

    What do I do if the template of the form that I want to unshare, it is not part of my forms anymore?

  • kan.caroline90


    i am trying to share this template

    but my friend cannot find the template under search.

  • averyabraham23

    Hi, I am having a similar problem. I am unable to unshare or update my form shared as a template.

  • leboa

    Hi this seems to be an ongoing issue that hasn't been fixed. Like others, I am not given the option to unshare or edit a form shared as a template, even after following the steps listed in other people's answers.

  • GHSolar

    How do I update a template I shared when the form has been deleted? The template has my email address as a default and I have received a few auto-response emails to submissions from other users.

  • DrJeanieB

    hi. i am using a shared template, but it keeps adding the original name to it instead of the new one. so it doesnt look like my form. How to fix this please?

  • FBFITDir

    I inadvertently shared a form as a template. Please unshare the template. I followed the instructions above, and there is no "Unshare Form" button available to me. I want to keep the form internally, but I do not want to share it publicly as a template.

    Here's the location:

  • csfltd

    I have managed to share a template twice
    I shared by mistake, then went to unsure and shared it again
    The form is called FB Maint Report

  • Franksmile

    I accidently shared the template. Please unshare the following template please.

  • quickgrid

    I have previously shared a from as a template and deleted but now the shared forms don't appear in the templates. The prompt indicates the form has been saved to the templates.

  • richmh

    Like others have already commented - the sharing dialogue does not offer the UNSHARE or UPDATE options so the form remains available as before.

  • ealingfoodbank

    Thanks but I don't get the option to update or unshare form when I follow these instructions.

    Any suggestions?

    I can still see it when I search in Templates tab and it appears in My forms even though I had deleted it earlier.

  • microvignesh

    Can you please delete this template shared by me?

  • Rose

    It doesn’t give me the option to Unshare form when I went to follow those process. It only gives me the option to share it as a template.

  • Gill Rees

    I can't seem to find this in the list of templates even though I have followed these steps?

    Regards, Gill Rees

  • lindsayjayecox

    If i delete my form to add more room in my forms, will they delete also from the template database?

  • Goff5

    I have three forms that I accidentally shared as templates. I've tried to remove them using the above links, but they don't allow me to un-publish. Ideas?

  • eramirez0730

    I followed the steps above, but my form only stays in the Templates Gallery for about a day, then seems to drop off. I have to keep repeating the process so that it stays up. Am I doing something wrong?

  • idomeneohr

    When you share a form as as a template do your email notifications get removed?

  • CassiClaire

    Can you UN-share a form if you shared it on accident? Or if you made a mistake and want to re-share a newer version?

  • juniorhq88

    How can I insert all my text in a database?
