    Multiple (copied) forms on the same page

    Hi all, I am stuck with an issue about multiple forms on the same page. I would really appreciate your help :-)


    My page has 2 different forms for customer inquiry (i.e. "Get a quote" and "Book a test drive"). When submitting one, the other fires validation.

    Looking at the html markup, I noticed that each field id/name/label[for] have a GUID instead of the field alias (is this by design? Why not field alias?). Also, the id of my "First name" input on "Get a quote" form is exactely the same of "Book a test drive" field. And this is the same for all the other common fileds. I guess this is the cause of "double validation".

    Environment and settings

    Umbraco 7.10.3 - Umbraco Forms 7.0.2 - I am using a custom form theme template - I am using server only validation (no js at the moment)

    My process steps

    1. Create the form "Get a quote" (First name, Last name, Email, Phone, etc.)
    2. Copy this form to create the new "Book a test drive" (same basic fileds with some other added)
    3. Implement these 2 forms in my template vew with @Umbraco.RenderMacro("renderUmbracoForm", new { FormGuid="85426a43-274b-4304-80c9-e88234ae66eb", FormTheme ="bootstrap4", ExcludeScripts="1"}) (the same method for the second form with its own GUID)

    Possible bug or my mistake?

    Copying forms does not provide/re-assign a different GUID for copied fileds? Missing anything in my code/implemtation?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi Alex, unfortunately we were wrong about the possible fix and this issue is still there
