    Is it possible to extract information from one form (contact information) and populate it on an entirely new form

    Asked by Qschool on March 09, 2017 at 04:00 AM

    Hello JotForm Support,

    I work at a school and we have students submit an application for consideration. When a student is accepted, is there any way we can extract that student information and pre-populate it onto their enrollment agreement for simplicity and time consideration? 

    Thank you for the help!

    Hello Gerard,

    If what you want is to get the information from the records of a form and to automatically pull that information to fill a different form, unfortunately it's not directly possible. You can export the submissions and if you want it automated, you will need to create a custom tool that shall populate another form from your local/own database.

    Feel free to let us know if you have questions.
