Dashboard overview

As soon as you log in to your Cognito Forms account, you’ll land on your organization’s Dashboard, where you can view, sort, and organize your forms. Additionally, you can perform bulk operations such as moving, archiving, and deleting forms.

Individual forms

Select an individual form to access the form’s Build, Publish, and Entries pages as well as:

  • Details: View form information and update history, including which user last modified the form and when the changes occurred. You can also export form details from one or more forms. Please note that forms created before February 7, 2024, may not display the user who created them.
  • Users: View the list of users that have permission to access the form.
  • Copy: Create a copy of the form.
  • Public Link: Open the form’s direct link.

Select or hover over an individual form.


Select one of the headers (Starred, Title, Storage, or Entries) at the top of the form view to sort your forms. Then toggle back and forth between ascending and descending lists:

  • Favorite (starred) forms
  • Alphabetically by title (A-Z and Z-A)
  • Storage count (0-9 and 9-0)
  • Entry count (0-9 and 9-0)

Viewing your favorite forms.

Bulk operations

Select one or more forms to access the following options:

  • Move: Move forms to a folder (or remove them from a folder). A form can only be in one folder at a time.
  • Archive: Send forms to the Archived view. This option is an easy way to set forms aside without deleting them.
  • Delete: Upon selecting this option, you’ll be prompted to type DELETE and confirm the deletion of your forms and all associated entries. Be careful when deleting a form - the form and entry data will be permanently deleted!
  • Export Details: Export form details from all selected forms on the dashboard to a CSV file.

Select multiple forms to perform bulk actions.

Form views

The ability to archive forms is available to organizations on the Pro, Team, and Enterprise plans.

Choose between different form views:

  • All Forms: View all of the forms in your organization that you have permission to access.
  • Recent: View up to 20 of your most recently viewed forms (from the Build, Publish, and Entries pages).
  • Starred: View all of your favorite forms (as indicated by the yellow star next to the form title).
  • Archived: View all forms that have been archived (but not deleted). Once archived, forms can still be viewed and managed in the builder, but archived entries cannot be updated. Any custom document templates in Live mode will switch to Test mode. Please note that archived forms and entries are included in your organization’s storage.
    • To restore an archived form, select the form and then select Restore from the top menu. Restoring a form that’s inside an archived folder automatically restores the folder as well.



This feature is available to organizations on the Pro, Team, and Enterprise plans.

You can create an unlimited number of folders in which to organize all your forms. To create a new folder, select New Folder from the bottom left-hand column on your Dashboard. Then, use the icons on the right-hand side to make changes to your folder:

  • Users: Organizations on the Enterprise plan can assign user permissions to folders, which apply to all forms within each folder. Learn more about assigning folder permissions.
  • Title: Edit the folder title.
  • Archive: Archiving a folder automatically archives all forms inside it. Restoring a form in an archived folder will restore the folder as well.
  • Delete: Only empty folders can be deleted.

A form can be in one folder at a time. To move a form into a folder, select the form(s) you want to move, click the Move option at the top of the form view, and select the folder name. Once moved, the form(s) will still be accessible from the All Forms view, and any other relevant views. Moving a form into a folder does not affect the form’s public Url.
