Create Surveyor General Form Template

Last modified on September 12, 2021

Save all your template files in the same folder for ease of access

Locate and navigate to your web filing package

On the Package page click Start an Application

On the Add Application page click Add on the web form that will be the basis of the template

Complete the sections that will form part of the template. In this example it is the Submitter section

Once all required sections are completed, verify the template by reviewing it on the Web Filing Form section

Click Manage Form Data then select Save Template on the dropdown

The save action of your browser will display saving a *.WFF file named after the form name

The *.WFF file name is influenced by few naming conventions and may be different in some cases

  • The file name can be taken from the original form label name
  • The file name can be taken from the renamed form label name

If the browser automatically saves the *.WFF file, the browsers' file download settings must be adjusted. The processes below are for supported browsers - Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge

Google Chrome

In Google Chrome click Settings > click Advance > select Downloads > Turn on Ask where to save each file before downloading

Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox click Options > select General > scroll to Files and Applications > Downloads > select Always ask you where to save files

Microsoft Edge 

In Microsoft Edge click Settings > select General > scroll to Downloads > Turn on Ask me what to do with each download

The template file can now be used to create a new web form
