    Why passing values from one to another form is not working properly?

    Asked by 7Aspire on May 03, 2017 at 11:17 AM

    I am trying to get one form to pre-populate identical fields in a second form, following the submission of the first form.

    The second form is accessed from the first form's thank you link.  I understand how fields can be pre-populated by using the structure '&name_of_field=xxx' method, but cannot work out the 'xxx' bit.

    My thank you page link in my first form is:


    The 4 field names in the first form have identical field names in the second form.

    Clearly I cannot know what someone will enter in the first form's fields, so how should the pre-population link on the first form's thank you URL be configured to autofill the second form?

    I checked your forms and I was able to create an URL that worked.

    Since I cloned both forms the below URL should work for you as it is:


    So just copy and paste it in the Thank you page.

    I tested and all fields are transferring fine.
