Configure data to duplicate

By default, when a record is duplicated, all of the information it contains is copied. From the form, it is possible to define the values of the fields to duplicate in a submissions. This is configured in the advanced settings of your form:

Special case of relation

When duplicating a record, if a relationship field needs to be copied, we use the relationship parameters to know what to do.

Also be careful not to put the same system name on your relationship element fields (and formulas based on a child field) so that the form is duplicated.

Relationship under content

If the relationship does not allow selection (but allows creation and modification): we recreate the sub-file and link it to the new file.The fact of not authorizing selection shows that we are in a sub-content type relationship.

The sub-file only exists within its parent file, it is duplicated.

Reference relationship

If the relationship allows selection: we create a link between the existing sub-file and the new file.

The selection being available, we are in a reference relationship. The sub-file may have meaning on its own or in other parent files, it is not duplicated.
