    Can I transpose a file upload from one form to another?

    Asked by gptqcorporate on April 26, 2017 at 09:49 PM

    I want to prepopulate a second form and I can do it with text entries no problem, but I also want to transpose files uploaded from the 1st form as well.  Is this possible?

    I'm afraid to say that it is not possible to pass on the URL of the local file from one form to another form through URL parameters.

    The possible way is, you can access the URL of the uploaded on the first form and pass it to the second form. You can use the the {tag} name of your upload field attachments={attachments}.

    For example:

    URL: https://form.jotformpro.com/form/71158532663963?uploadLink={upload} where {upload} is upload field tag from the first form.

    Here's my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71158574063963. You can clone it on your end and see how it was set up.
