    I don't want my customers to have to enter their name and email on every form.  I want one registration form and have the name an email address prepopulate on the other forms

    Hello, 

    You can prepopulate fields on the second from by passing the values through the URL.  Here is a thread that dealt with that topic.  You may also want to look at this user guide notes. Please let me know if that helps!

    I tried this but this is not exactly what I wanted.  I don't want my customer to have to click a link in order for the form to prepopulate.  I want all form to prepopulate from that one form once it is submitted.

    Hi, it is posible by using the custome URL of the "Thank you" feature.

    Here is a link that may can help you. Let me know if that better addresses the issue!

    Here is a guide http://monk.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page .

    You will need to have you own hosted website capable of hosting server side scripts like PHP or Javascript for this.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance doing this.

    Thanks.

    does this solution require my customers to click any sort of link.  I want this to be seemless for the customer.  I just want them to fill out the registration form and submit it.  I want the information to automatically move to all the other forms on my site.

    Like my colleague Jonathan has stated "You will need to have you own hosted website capable of hosting server side scripts like PHP or Javascript for this"

    This means the workaround could be accomplished in steps.

    1. Have form#1 setup to post submission data to an URL Thank you page

    2. The confirmation page URL(or Thank You page) would be in this case  form #2's URL

    Of course, this might require fromd you to use PHP server side programming, which means to write programming code in order to accomplish what you need .

    Here's a sample two-part form that does just that:

    http://www.jotform.com/form/11231828239

    This is the PHP script I used to pass the form variables:

    http://pastie.org/4659817

    That's for two variables only, namely Full Name and Email fields. The script will be much longer and more complicated if you want to pass additional data from one form to another, especially the more complex ones such as matrix tables.
