Bug Fixes

The following are tracker numbers and descriptions of bug fixes.

Forms: Error on Prod "Create Form from Existing" Command - this bug was introduced in Release which was released Monday Nov. 7, 2022.

The Form's "Create Form from Existing" command was throwing an error when executed by selecting a Form from search results.  A consequence of the failed command was that questions were duplicated in each Module with a "Date Created" of the date when the command was executed.

If you encountered an Error when attempting to create a new form, please review the form you were copying from and delete the extra questions. If you turn on "Audit Columns" you can see the "Date Created" for each Question, and you can sort by the "Date Created" column to make it easier to see which Question are the duplicates.
