Importing Forms From WPForms
When you export a form from WPForms, you’ll download a JSON file. You can use that file to recreate the form on the same site, or create an exact copy on a totally different site.
Remember: if you want to export from one site and export to the other, you’ll need a license that allows you to install WPForms on both sites. You may need to upgrade your WPForms license to make sure that both sites support the form.
To start, go to WPForms » Tools.
On the Import tab, under WPForms Import, browse for your JSON file and select it.
Hit Import to start the process.
If your form imports correctly, you’ll see a success message and a link to view your newly imported form.
This method works great for a single form or multiple. They can all be uploaded at the same time.
Next, let’s look at the process if you want to import a form from Contact Form 7.
