Overview 

You may copy an existing Form to save time for Forms that share much of the same information.

Important Note

  • Copying a form essentially creates a new form record and so it will not move the submissions that are currently attached to the form, the original will stay in place and will remain untouched.
  • You will also have to update any links that you may have had to the form since the new form has its own URL.

Disclaimer

Information submitted on this form will be sent via email. To protect sensitive information, do not request the following information on this form: Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, bank account information, routing numbers, medical information, passport numbers, and passwords.
