How to duplicate a Form

Follow

Overview & Background

It is often helpful to make duplicates of a form if you know that the form will have quite a lot of the same entries. It can also be helpful to clone your form templates across different projects so you won't have to recreate a form in every new project. This Help Article explains both processes.

Note: Once you duplicate a form template, it will become available on the mobile version of Fieldwire. This is the best workaround if you want to have multiple copies of a form available on your mobile app.

Note: Currently, Form Templates can only be cloned to new projects. Custom Form Templates cannot be retroactively cloned to existing projects. 

Note: Ensure that you are the Account Owner, or that you are covered under a Business Account to ensure that you can clone form templates. Please reference this article on Account Permissions for more information.
