How to export your form configuration

We built a feature into the Sintel Forms Designer called "Export configuration". This generates a template file with the extension ".sfrm" which can be used to import your exact form configuration into another site, we know pretty cool right!

We added this feature for 2 main reasons..

  1. Develop, Test, Deploy

    It permits you to design a form including its Layout, Workflow and Logic in a test site and once you are happy it works as expected you can then then export that configuration into a template that you can then import into another site preserving all the settings you had configured in the form.

  2. Troubleshooting issues

    It provides us with a very quick way of assisting you in the event that you have an issue. If you have configured a form and want some help with an issue or simply configuring the form you can export the configuration to a template and send it to us. We can then import the template and replicate your exact form in less than 2 minutes! We know pretty awesome right!

  1. Launch the Sintel Forms Designer by clicking on the icon in the ribbon
  2. From the top menu click on "Export configuration"
