How can I move a custom form from a Personal Forms Library to the Global Forms Library?

I have three forms created in my Personal Forms Library.  I need to move them to the Global Forms Library so other users have fast access to them.  How can I do that?

You can copy all your .oft forms from : C:\Users\ your user name \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

Then, you can past them to the global forms library.

Actually, this is the path of the personal forms library:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry, I meant to ask about the location of the GLOBAL forms library.  My mistake!

Are you on Exchange server?

You can also take a look at this link:
To distribute Microsoft Outlook forms to other users

Unless you can publish the form to the Organizational Forms library, each person will need to get the .oft file from you and save it to their local hard drive.

Thanks for the link!  We do have an Exchange server, and I should be able to publish to the organizational forms library using this information.  I will try this out and let you know if I have questions.

Our personal forms are all stored on the Exchange server.  Based on the link you sent, it seems I just need to give myself permission to save to the Organizational Forms Library.  Thanks.   I think I am on my way with this information.

The link provided did not give me the direct answer, but indicated that resolution is a matter of setting the correct permissions.

I was having trouble giving me permissions to the Organizational Forms folder.  At someone's suggestion, I saved the form to a public folder (I didn't know you could do that!), and then logged in as the admin and was able to open the form and save it to the organizational forms.  Not the elegant way I would have preferred to have done it, but the job is done and I can move on to other things.
