Copy Form Control from one form to another within a Workflow

Currnently you can copy/duplicate a form control only within the same form. It would be great if we could copy and paste form controls from one form to another within a workflow.

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback for our review. At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, due to low votes and as we are focused on other highly requested initiatives, such as styling, repeating sections, etc. The existing Exporting/Importing capability can also be used as an alternative tool to achieve the goal in reusability to reduce development time. Build the base Task form with all the common controls, then export the form. Start your next task form, import the base task form. All your controls in your base form now appear in your next task form(s). We reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change. Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.

    Agree, Especially in upgrading from O365 to NWC. When you have a lot of task forms that displays the same information in all of them and using the same controls. It would be very quicker to copy and paste from one form to another in another browser tab as well.
