    Hi,

    You can prepopulate URLs by following the guides below:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters 

    https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form 

     

    If you are using the session link, it should still be possible to pass data via the URL, the guides above should still apply, you just need to add "&" to append new fields or data. 

    Example:

    https://form.jotform.com/70380946653967?session=charmie@jotform.com&name[first]=Charlie&name[last]=Sheen 

    I hope that helps.

    Hello,

    There is not any difference between prepopulating the fields at the first page and the fields at the second page. It is working as usual.

    Please find the following URL in order to prepopulate the question at the second page in your form named "Clone of Showcase Questionnaire":

    Please try and if you need further assistance, let us know. We will be glad to help you.

    Thanks in advance.
