    How to pass name fields in URL?

    Asked by 171980Aimi on March 29, 2017 at 04:00 AM

    Hi, I have read the guidance, but can't figure out how I can pass first name and last name from my form named Form 1 to the corresponding first name and last name fields on the form I am trying to pass them to.  I can pass the email no problem, and I can pass the full name into the first name field on the second form, but can't get it to work properly so it maps first name to first name and last name to last name.

    Thanks,

    Simon

    You will need to split fist and last name filed values.

    In your case it should be like this:

    name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}

    This is the full URL:

    https://form.jotformeu.com/70865905018359?session={email}&name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}

    Here is my cloned Form 1: https://form.jotformpro.com/70872131390957

    I have added URL at the top of thank you page. 

    Feel free to test it and clone it.
