[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Duplicate a question in forms

Hi there,

I have a request for the ability to duplicate a question on a form. I initially had a form where on the first page you select what deliverable you require, and also select your department and program area from a dropdown. The department and program area mapped to custom assignments and folder locations. However some of the deliverable options don't use the custom assignments, but the majority do need the department and program information, so I have to move those 2 questions to be part of the subsequent relevant pages and remove them from the first page.

Duplicating these 2 questions on 4 other form pages is about a day's work, so I'd really love to see this feature added ;)

Hi Austin, I really like your thinking here, it's an interesting suggestion 👍

I'd like to get a better understanding of your use case however just in case I've slightly misunderstood it.

You're making edits to an existing Request form, and you'd like to move an existing question to a subsequent page without having to re-write it? 

Thanks for posting 🙂

Hi Stephen! That's correct. I want to copy a question with many dropdowns, each selection with custom assignments and folder placements, to another page of the form while retaining all those custom elements. So I can then remove it from the original location without having to manually recreate every question and custom assignments.

That's a logical request Austin. I'll ensure it's brought to the attention of our Product Team and if there are any updates I'll get back to you here. Thanks again for sharing. Happy posting 👍

Yes! I cannot believe this option isn't there. Request forms are not that friendly to create. The UX could be SO much better. You should be able to:
• Duplicate a question and place wherever you want.
• Duplicate an entire page within an existing request form.

I am creating request forms with many dropdown options.

On each of these options I need to add a product pick lists - these are around 50 strong.

If you I could duplicate a question then I wouldn't have to spend almost a day copying each product into the new request.

And yes I know if I made the product list on a single page and link to that page I could solve this but for various reasons I can't do that.  So the ability to duplicate a question would be a very good product enhancement.

This would be a great option for our team because currently we are copying sections of a form manually. I know you can duplicate the entire form, but it would be nice to be able to duplicate questions on a form and move them to other pages.

This would be an AMAZING feature! I have wasted so much time having to copy my dropdown questions by hand 😕

This is such a good idea, (and would personally save me time too) and the Product Team agrees. They're currently working on other enhancements right now, so this is on the Backburner and the team will look into this at a later stage and I'll keep you updated here 👍

I desperately need this too! It takes so long to create forms! Often times we ask up front how many deliverables but then need to ask the same questions regarding each deliverable- so i have to create a new page and build out the questions for 1 deliverable, then another page and built out the same exact questions for 2 deliverables... so on and so forth and often times we are doing 10+ deliverables.

Hi everyone! I've checked with the team - this suggestion isn't on their short-term roadmap, but I will be checking again in Q1 2021 and I'll let you know if there's a status change. Please make sure to +1 the original suggestion - this is what really helps the team assess the popularity of suggestions here.
