Move a Form

  2. Mouse over the dropdown beside the form name.
  3. Select Move.

  4. Select the target formspace.  This is where the form will be moved to.
  5. Link the form to data destinations in the target formspace.  Any data destinations set to "auto-link" will be attached automatically.

  6. In the "Documents" column, choose documents for each data destination to send.  Each destination can send multiple documents.  If the form already has a document attached to it, it will be added automatically. If it doesn't, documents in the target formspace will be available for selection.

  7. Add Additional Documents.  These are the documents that will be available for download in the Data tab of the portal, the Sent tab of the mobile app, and the API. Any documents that are set to "auto-link" will be in this list automatically.

Advanced Options

Action to perform on duplicate Data Sources, Documents and Form Images in Target FormSpace

When a form is moved/copied from one FormSpace to another, it will bring a copy of any connected resources (data sources, documents, form images) with it.  This options controls what happens during this copy if there is already a resource with the same name in the target FormSpace.

  • Overwrite Target Resources: Copy any resources linked to the form into the target FormSpace.  Replace any target FormSpace resources that have the same name.  Note: This will affect all forms using these resources, not just the form being moved/copied.
  • Repoint Form to Target Resources:  If resources in the target FormSpace have the same name as resources already linked to the form, the form will use those resources instead.  No copy will be made.
  • Copy and Rename Original Resources:  Copy any resources linked to the form into the target FormSpace.  If these resources have the same name as existing resources in the target FormSpace, they will be renamed to avoid duplication.
