    Hi! I'm trying to pass name and email from this the end of this form

    https://form.jotform.us/72156241538152

    to this form

    https://form.jotform.us/72187866522162

    The email pass works, but the name does not. 

    I looked up the name and ID, and I think I am formatting it correctly, but something is wrong... 

    my link looks like this:

    https://form.jotform.us/72187866522162?session={email}&pleaseConfirm50={pleaseConfirm23}&pleaseConfirm[first_47]={pleaseConfirm:first_22}&pleaseConfirm[last_47]={pleaseConfirm:last_22}

    I'd love to understand what I'm doing wrong...

    I have been inspecting the URL you have provided and I can see you are using some incorrect values: 

    https://form.jotform.us/72187866522162?session={email}&pleaseConfirm50={pleaseConfirm23}&pleaseConfirm[first_47]={pleaseConfirm:first_22}&pleaseConfirm[last_47]={pleaseConfirm:last_22

    Do note that it's not required to add the "_11" which is the field ID, you could only use the "last", example: 

    https://form.jotform.us/72187866522162?session={email}&pleaseConfirm50={pleaseConfirm23}&pleaseConfirm[first]={pleaseConfirm:first}&pleaseConfirm[last]={pleaseConfirm:last}

    I have tested it and noticed it works, please check the following testing form: https://form.jotformpro.com/72358039246965 

    Here is also a guide that will help you passing the data from one form to another: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    I hope this helps.
