Another reason to love Gravity Forms!
I recently needed to move a only one Gravity Form to another site I was developing. The customer wanted the same form on the new site. I was not looking to re-creating the whole form because it was quite long. Then, with a little research, I found that the Import/Export function on Gravity Forms worked not only with entries, but also with the forms themselves!
Here’s how you do it:
Just go to the submenu on Forms in your dashboard on the left you will see a “Import/Export” option. Click on that screen at the top by default you will be in “Export Entries”, click on the “Export Forms” button. Select the form you want to export and it will download a file to your computer. Then go to the new site where you want to import the file and follow the same procedure, but instead of clicking on the link at the top that says “Export Forms” click the “Import Forms” button. You can then upload your downloaded file there and it will upload the form to the new site.Of course, you have to have the Gravity Forms plugin on the new site, but it was incredibly easy. I downloaded the XML file from the old site and uploaded it to the new site. Viola!
Thanks to Jeff VanDrimmelen for this great tip!
6/6/15 Update: You can also use this method to copy a form on your own site. If you need two forms that are very similar, simply export the form, and then import the form.
One thing to note, when you import the form to the same site, it will keep the title of the form the same as it was before, but simply add an “x” to the end to differentiate it. To change the form name, simply go into the Form Settings and change the title to whatever you want.
