    This form permits users to select their institution

    https://form.jotform.com/62717545635159

     

    then forwards to another form, in which the institution should be prepopulated from the previous form

    but does not seem to be working

    https://form.jotform.com/62756120041142?institution={institution}

     

     

    please advise

     

    in the past there had been inconsistency in the field institution

    but i thought i had fixed this

    thanks

    There are 2 issues with your current setup that needs to be fixed:

    1. The URL parameters you're using appears to be incorrect.

    Your Form 1's Select your institution, pick from the CEVL list below field uses the following Field Name:

    selectYour

    And your Form 2's Institution field uses the following Field Name:

    institution

    So, the correct URL should:

    https://www.jotform.com/62756120041142?institution={selectYour}

    2. Your 1st Form doesn't have a Thank You page redirect URL setup.

    Now that you have the correct prepopulated URL, paste that on your Form 1's Thank You page redirect (#4 below):
