    Copy field answer into a text field inside the form

    Asked by WisdomOnTap on June 01, 2017 at 01:51 PM

    I've been working with Jotform (and trying to move quizzes over from Typeform) 

    I am looking to "inject" content into a statement page, or result page. IE Hi (what they said on q1 as "name") Looks like you (What they said on Q2 as whatever)

    What would be good is if I could inject their exact words for the answer

    What would be GREAT is if I could inject something else (For example, if they simply said "yes" to being a male, "injecting" "Guy" instead of yes.

    Has anyone had luck with this? I see it there in the console, but cant get it to work.

     

    Thanks

    Tom

     

    Below is a typeform that serves as an example

    This is possible to use field {names} to inject answers from other fields.

    1) How to Find Field IDs and Names

    2) For example if the Name field has a {name15} internal name, you can use that name on other fields.

    What would be GREAT is if I could inject something else (For example, if they simply said "yes" to being a male, "injecting" "Guy" instead of yes.

    We cannot inject different answer, but it is possible to use conditional logic on form to show different fields based on user answers.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    You should use the field name instead of the field ID. 

    Note that this feature will only work for a text field, not inside the labels.
