    Can a field be populated from a previous field entry?

    Asked by Melissa on May 25, 2017 at 04:15 PM
    4. Can a field be populated from a previous field entry?  For instance on a multi-page form that requires a name, can the name be entered in the first "name" field and then auto-populate into subsequent "name" fields?

    For multiple pages form, you can use this conditional logic guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Mathematical-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-a-Condition. The condition can copy a field and put it to another field.

    Here's a demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71446584977978

    Here's a screenshot of the condition:

    IF the Name field is Filled. DO Copy a Field's value FROM Name field TO Name 3 field. 

    To further check my condition configurations, you can clone my demo form by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope that helps. If you need clarifications or other questions, please message us again. Thank you.
