How to Clone an Embedded Form from a Webpage

Last Update: August 5, 2017

So you liked a form on a specific web page, or your client wants to preserve their old form as it was. Cloning a form from a web page saves time in such instances and JotForm makes it very easy. Take the points below into consideration before cloning a form:

🔘 You've got to know the URL of the form and copy it

🔘 When you provide the URL to the wizard, it fetches the form structure

🔘 Your form is cloned and ready to use anywhere you want

To get started:

1. Go to your MY FORMS page

2. Click the CREATE FORM button



5. Paste the URL to the ENTER THE URL textbox

6. Then click the CONTINUE button to finish

That's all there is to cloning a form from a webpage. If you want to know how to clone one of your existing forms, use the guide below:

What if the form is a multi part application form? Can you still clone it some how? When I try this method it only copies the actual URL of the form start page and not the rest of the form.

I've attempted to import a form from a different account using the import form feature. The imported form loses some of the header fields as well as the condition information.

Is there any method to perform an exact copy of the Jotform without losing any elements of the form?

Also, I am using the embed code for the import form entry field. Is that the correct url I should be entering?

Thanks in advance!

I entered the URL and get the message that No Form is found on the page. I tried leaving out the EU part as I did do a clone last year before you had GoDaddy trouble.

Here's the URL

I put the url in and it just lists all the response fields, not the form as it appears - here is the link. I cannot get it to clone properly.

When I do this, I get a login form, not the one I wanted to clone.

I tried this to copy a form via URL from this account to our main, got a username/password form and now our main account (with all our job apps) is suspended. Suffice to say now we have access to none of our forms to even try and get back-ups on our site.

Please update this information explaining how the URL clone works, because following directions only to find yourself suspended (as a few have been) is saddening, especially when you've done nothing wrong.
