    Text field: Form Fields dropdown to populate a text field is not showing up other fields from other pages

    Asked by rbeck on March 13, 2017 at 11:47 AM


    For some reason on page 3 of this form: https://www.jotform.com/70096830595160 the summary text box that is presented to the user, will not allow me to select any form fields from the previous pages.

    As you can see above the Text Box field only offers 1 form filed from which to choose. It seems it only sees form field on this page. I need it pull in fields from other pages to properly summarize the clients' selections.

    What's the fix for this, please?

    Thanks for you help, as always.

    It's doing the same thing on my end, the other fields on the previous page(s) are not showing up in the dropdown of form fields in the Text field.

    Let me forward this matter to our developers. As soon as we have an update, we will let you know here.

    For the meantime, copy the field names manually and paste in the text editor.
