Import your form data using our simple three-step process. Just download the custom template, paste your entries into the designated columns, then upload your entries. It’s that easy.

Ensure accurate imports

Because Cognito Forms generates a custom Excel template for every import, your upload template perfectly matches your form. This helps ensure you correctly map your data to the appropriate form fields for more accurate results.

Import in bulk

Imported entries are counted the same as manual entries. You’re only limited by the number of entries your plan will process each month.

Move existing entries

Consolidate your entries into a single account

If you have multiple accounts or organizations with Cognito Forms, you can easily consolidate your data within a single account. Simply share your form with the new account. Then export your entries and upload them to the new form. Super simple.

Move form entries to Cognito Forms

You can import entry data from other form builders the same way you’d move it between Cognito Forms accounts. Just build your new form, copy the data from your old form into the custom template, and upload.

Streamline your Lookup fields

Use our import feature with Lookup fields to quickly populate the data you’re looking up, such as inventory lists, prices, and location and user data.
