    When the set prepopulate data to another form, the checkbox data is not prepopulated on the second form

    Asked by ashcreighton on June 10, 2017 at 03:29 AM

    I can get this to work for text fields but not for checkboxes; I've been trying for hours. It's definitely picking up the checkbox option (and displaying it in the resulting URL), however when I open the new form, no box is selected :( Can you help me with this? For reference, my form is at https://form.jotform.us/71586711502151 -- thank you very much :)

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I have cloned your form and tested on my side and could replicate the same issue with you. The checkbox field did not prepopulate on the second form.

    So, I have escalated this issue to our developers. If we have an update, we will inform you as soon as possible.

    If you have any questions or issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.
