Tip:Remember to repeat this step for each FormSpace where you have V1 forms and documents.
Is your document V1-specific?
If yes, go to step 2.
If no, you don’t need to convert it. You can copy the document to your target FormSpace, and then attach it to any V2 form in the same FormSpace.
Determine the body layout.
Refer to the Body Layout column in the Excel report to check your document’s body layout.
Does your V1-specific Document have a standard layout?
If yes, go to step 3.
If no, contact your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
Note:You can only convert V1-specific documents with a standard body layout.
