Copy a form within same application

It is possible to Duplicate or Copy a Form directly from the GUI. To duplicate a Form,

  • From the Dashboard page of the application, Click on Create New -> Form.
  • In the New Form dialog box, select the Form type as Form Template.
  • Choose a Form name for the duplicate form. Since the form already contains the form name, choose a different name for the form.
  • Select a form to duplicate from the Choose your Template drop down list.
  • The Choose your template drop down list consist of all the forms listed in the application.
  • Choose a particular form from the My Forms Section of the drop down list.
  • Select a Section under which the form has to be placed and click on Create button.

Note: Duplicating a Zoho Creator Form via script is not supported.

Copy a form to a different application

As of now, there is no direct way of copying a form to a different application from the GUI. As a workaround, you can follow the below steps:

  • Go to the application dashboard and select the form that you want to copy.
  • Go to Workflow -> Form Definition.
  • Copy the complete script in that editor.
  • Open the second application and go to Create New -> Form to create a blank Form.
  • Go to Workflow -> Form Definition of this blank form and paste the copied script in it.
  • Click "Save Script" to copy the form structure to this blank form.


  • All forms created from scratch or by importing a file will be stored as a Template under Create New Form > From Template > Choose your template dropdown for re-usability purposes.
