How to Clone an Embedded Form from a Webpage

May 3, 2022

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.
  1. Select Import Form.
  1. Choose From a web page.
  2. Paste the URL in the Enter URL textbox. Then click the Create Form button to finish and wait for the page to redirect to your cloned web form.

If you want to know how to clone one of your existing forms, please see the following user guide:

Notes

  • This guide is for cloning a Jotform form that is embedded on a webpage. Cloning non-Jotform forms may work, but it’s not guaranteed that the form builder will copy the structure of the form.
  • Jotform provides privacy settings for the form owner to prevent cloning within their account and the form. If these are enabled, you cannot clone the form. You will get an authorization error message instead.
  • Cloning creates a new form within your account, and Jotform will count this towards your Form Limit.
