XML edits to existing form?

  1. I have a form that I use to collect data from customers. The form was built prior to the release of the survey/poll add-ons. I would like to change certain radio/checkbox fields in this form to radio/checkbox poll or survey fields so that I can use the functionality of those features.

    The issue I'm having is that I need to use this particular form (let's call it Form 1) because that is the form my payment forms link up to, and I also have tools that pull certain data from this form based on the field ID number (long story).

    I know enough to export a form's xml file, edit the question properties, and then import it back, but importing the revised xml file creates a new form. What I need to do is edit the xml file in Form 1 and then save the changes so that the new changes are reflected within Form 1.

    Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance!

  3. One of our devs is going to do some experimenting with this tomorrow morning to see what they can come up with.

    With careful editing of the xml export file you'll be able to change some fields to poll/survey fields but you won't be able to specify the form id on import I'm afraid.

  5. Can we add this as a feature request. What about on the import form, a replace form or add form option?
