How to re-use/duplicate a form on the same website? - lolekbolek - Oct 3rd, 2017

Greetings!

I have a form 2.26, created using Form Builder. It is accessible to clients under the main http://www.domain_name_here.com. I would like to duplicate or export/import or backup/restore this form and (after some editing), use the touched up version under http://www.domain_name_here.com/other, so I would end up having two forms for different types of clients.  How can I do it?

Do you also happen to know how to do it?  Because I am looking for an actual advice.

I apologize for bumping this thread, but maybe someone can give me an advice on how to duplicate a form and use it in a different subdirectory?

Not sure how you'd do that with a internal form or form builder, but if you create your own form(external), that would probably be easier to accomplish this.

Thank you, ocroadband. I am hoping to do it with a form builder, but if it fails, will look at an external form...

Hey lolekbolek, you might want to check out the Form Backup module too:
https://docs.formtools.org/modules/form_backup/ (download from here: https://modules.formtools.org/)

That's designed to make exact copies of Form Tools forms, form Views + email templates. I don't think it's exhaustive (i.e. Form Builder settings won't get copied over) but it may help.

All the best -

Ben
