Importing an existing Form into Formstack


If you're switching to Formstack from another Form provider or Form Builder program, you can easily import your existing Forms into your Formstack Account.  The Form Importer function is very easy to use and can be a huge time-saver!

To access the Form Import option, navigate to your Form dashboard and click the "Import Form" option in the upper right-hand portion of the page.

 

Next, you will see a dialogue box where you can enter a Title for the Form and either import the Form from the URL where the Form is currently located or you can copy/paste the Form HTML into the Importer.
 
 

If using the Form URL to import and the site contains multiple Forms, you will receive a prompt to select which Form you would like to import.

After you click Import Forms, you will be directed back to the main Forms tab and you will see the progress of the importing forms at the top of the list.




Importing a Wufoo Form

When importing a Wufoo form, you will want to use the Import Form URL option and you will be prompted to add the form URL as well as the Wufoo API Key.



Then you will need to choose the form(s) from the list of forms that are pulled into the importer



Click Import Forms to begin the process. Just as you see above, you will be directed back to the main Forms tab and you will see the progress of the importing forms at the top of the list.

Important Notes when using the Importer:


Specialized fields such as Email or Phone fields will be imported as Short Answer fields but can be edited in the Formstack Builder once imported.

At this time Drop-down list selections will not import.

It's unfortunately no longer possible to import forms into Formstack that were created in Adobe Forms Central, due to Adobe placing all of their forms into read-only mode.
