    Passing calculated text area field to an embedded form on a second page/form

    Asked by PinkIguana on April 29, 2017 at 05:20 PM

    I've got a first form. It has a set of radio button selections that end up each populating a text box at the bottom of the form. I use a calculated field to get all of the radio button selections into the text box. I did it this way so that I could do a little formatting of the different radio button selectings inside the text box.

    Upon submission, I am attempting to pass the contents of this text box to a text box in a second form that is embedded on a different page. When I do the submission, the form hangs - white screen, no 404 or other error message.

    When I backed up a little and tried sending a value from just one of the radio button selections rather than the fulls set of them inside the text area, the second form displayed it just perfectly. 

    So I think the issue is in specifically in the passing of the calculated text box.


    Here is the first form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71146686584972

    Here is the second form: https://simplyreview.us/response-wizard-thank-you/71146025684960/

    Here is the Thank You page external redirect for the calculated field text box on the first form that hangs:



    Here is the Thank You page external redirect for a sinlge radio button selection on the first form that does NOT hang:



    Why is it hanging when I try to pass the calculated flied text box but passes the info fine when I just pass a single radio button selection? 


    FYI, the calculated field text box information emails fine with all the pieces and formatting. The only problem is getting it to show in the second, embedded form.

    This is a different question. The issue is that I cannot get the calculated
    field text box value to pass to the embedded form. Other no calculated
    field values I am able to pass without issue. You answer does not address
    why passing the calculated field value doesn't work while other non
    calculate dfield values do.

    I reviewed your form and I noted that there was a deleted condition error on the form. I think it was affecting the condition to redirect URL with calculation value on the form.


    I suggest you correct first the error in the Conditions and then test it again.

    Let us know if issue was not resolved by this.
