    Is there a way to autorespond to a form response with information gathered from another form?

    Asked by kallah on July 13, 2017 at 01:46 PM

    Hi,

    I'm interested in creating an automatic email for one form and fill it with information fields received from another form. For example, one form asks for users' reviews of teachers. The other form asks people taking the class for the name of the teacher they want information about. I want to automatically create an email from that form that responds with information about the teacher that I received from the first form. How would I do this? 

    BTW, right now my forms are on Google Drive (as you see from the links below) but I intend to migrate them over to Jotform. 

    Also, I love your site and your service. Kudos! 

     

    Thanks,

    Shira

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to do that at the moment, as autoresponders can only access the information for the form they are sent from. 

    You can pass information between forms using the pre-populate method via URL, but that will only send the information submitted from on the first form to the second form in the same session, and not all the data submitted to the form in general. If this works for you, you can refer to the guide below for more information:
