Export/Import Form Items

The ability to export and import all the fields and settings for Forms in the same way we can for Pages and Custom Modules. The export/import file should include each field/setting for each of the three Forms tabs: Form Builder, Edit Layout, and Settings.

Currently, the layout of forms (the content entered into the ‘Edit Layout’ tab of Forms) can be backed up by downloading the html file via FTP. The content of the auto-response email (the content in the ‘Settings’ tab of Forms) cannot be downloaded or exported for backup. Nor can the content under the ‘Form Builder’ tab be downloaded or exported.

See previous Forum discussion at: Backing up the automated email of a web form

@Peter-Schmidt can we get this added to the backlog?

@hopestew - Sorry that I missed this :slight_smile:

Is this up for vote still? I can’t seem to find it in the Backlog in Partner Portal.

Import/Export of Forms would save our team hours and hours and hours… Love the ability to upload (File Manager) or to copy/paste entire form’s code in the Edit layout, but setting up additional forms using the Form Builder and Settings is very challenging, especially if quite a few custom fields with items like Checkbox lists. Ability to duplicate forms (within site) and also import/export (to other sites) would be huge, just as duplicating CMs has been.

A bit strange - Can’t find it either. Checked the backend and it is here: Export/Import Form Items

Will need to check further to see why it is not showing :slight_smile:

EDIT: Visible in the portal now :slight_smile:

This is a great upgrade to the Forms module, and it would be even better if we could import and export Form layouts as well
