Archiving (Deleting) or Editing Form Templates

Active forms need active form templates.

Furthermore, all forms using a Form Template should be identical.

And so once a Form Template is used to create a form, you will notice it changes color in the form template folder (to black), signifying it can no longer be edited or changed, and the "Archive" button will disappear.

Ways to Change Form Templates

If you want to change a Form Template that has already been used for a form, you cannot edit the template, but you can create a "copy" and edit that version. The steps are:

  1. Click "Copy" on the Form Template page

  2. Select the type of forms that will be created - for teachers, children or a center*

  3. Change the title to reflect how your new Form Template is different

* Form type affects where the forms are housed on Educa. Teacher forms will attach to a teacher's profile (under "Forms), child forms to a child's profile (under "Forms") and center forms on the Forms homepage (under Tools), in a "Center Forms" tab.

Note, Educa uses the term "archive" instead of delete to refer to items that are moved to an "Archive" folder. It is possible to go into the Archive folder and restore or "Activate" archived templates.
