How to Clone an Existing Form From a URL

December 7, 2023

This guide shows how to clone an existing form into your Jotform account. Cloning Jotform forms give the best results. For non-Jotform forms, the system will try its best to recreate the form — you can customize the form in the Form Builder afterward.


  • Jotform form owners can choose to prevent other users from cloning their forms — indicated by the “Unauthorized request” message that appears when cloning the form.
  • Cloning creates a new form in your account which counts toward your total form count.

To clone a form into your account

  1. Copy the URL of the form that you’d like to clone.
  2. Go to My Forms and select Create Form in the upper-left corner.

  2. Finally, select Create Form at the bottom.
