    Sending a picture upload field from one form to another

    Asked by State8Motorcycles on June 19, 2017 at 04:59 PM



    I have one form that I would like the user to be able to submit an upload that will then get passed to the other form via URL parameters. 

    If it is possible to transfer the upload from form 1 to autopopulate the upload on form 2 that would be great. If not, is it possible to have that upload from form 1 autopopulate the a textbox on form 2 with the image url from form 1?

    Unfortunately it is not possible at this time. You cannot pass the uploaded file from one form to another form using auto population of fields.

    The most you can do is populate the other form Textbox field with the URL link of the file from form one. But you will have to know first the URL link of the uploaded file. 

    The way this work is just similar to giving the shared link of the file when doing it using other application like Dropbox or Google drive.

    I hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
