    Prepopulated data from form 1 to form 2.

    The manager needs to approve a timesheet entry.  The manager requires a picture of the person(s) submitting the timesheet to be attached to the submission.  I can pre-populate the data entries but I can't get the file to transfer.  Do you have any suggestions?

    If you want to add the custom prepopulated Form 2 URL in the email Template, it should be like this, please see the image below:
