    You need to have the fields included in your form.

    1) Add the field in your form:

    2) Get its unique name: https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-Find-Field-IDs-and-Names 

    3) Add it in the Text field:


    If you will pass the data from one form to another, do the following:

    1) You still need to have the fields, which you can hide through their advanced properties: https://www.jotform.com/help/434-How-to-Hide-Form-Fields 

    2) Still add their unique name in the Text Field.

    3) Prepopulate the hidden field with the data that comes from the other form as shown on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form 

    Example of the prepopulated link that is included in the first form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71705505680960?date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}
