The GoCanvas Form Builder is used to create the forms your users will fill out and submit from their devices. If you need to create the same field or screen multiple times, just click the Copy icon to make an instant copy of the field or screen.
Copy a field
Hover over the field in your form and click the Copy icon.
Copy a screen
Hover over the screen in the App Outline and click the Copy icon.
Other options for replicating content
- Loop a screen
When you add a screen to a form in GoCanvas, you can loop the screen. This allows you to repeat a screen as many times as necessary. When you're done adding all of the items to the list you can advance through the rest of your form.
Inspectors often need this since they apply the same criteria to all of the items they inspect. Instead of building 20 screens for the 20 items you inspect, build one screen and set it to loop. You can add your items to your list, and then capture the data you need for the inspection of that item.

- Copy an entire Form
You can also copy an entire form. This is great if you need to create a slightly different version of your form. Learn how.
- Create a Template
You can use a Template to create a new form from anytime you want. Maybe you have 4 sales regions and each one needs a form that is mostly identical but with some slight variations. You could build a from with all of the common functions and then create a template from that form. Then you could build the other forms off of the template. Learn how.
