Sometimes, you may need to duplicate a Contact Form 7 (CF7) form on your current website to another website.
Manually copying the form can be time-consuming and prone to human errors. Contact Form 7 Skins now offers a better way to duplicate a Contact Form 7 form across multiple websites by exporting it from one website and importing it into another one.
In this article, we describe the process of exporting CF7 forms from your WordPress website using CF7 Skins.
Advantages of Export of Contact Form 7 forms
Export of Contact Form 7 forms provides the following advantages:
- Share your forms with colleagues to let them create your forms on their websites.
- Save a form as an exported backup and store it outside of WordPress.

2. Select Enable export of individual CF7 Skins form.
3. Click Save Changes.
Tip: You can now export & import individual CF7 forms on your websites or share the exported files with your colleagues to help them create the same form on their websites.
After enabling export, you can export a CF7 form using the following steps:
1. Go to your Contact Form.
2. Click Export Form.
Tip: The Export Form button is only displayed if you have enabled export in your website.
3. Provide a name for the exported file and click Save.
