I have two forms:
When a user fills out the first form- enter your address and hits WIN- a new page will appear with form number 2.
I have the same form field question on this form Enter your address. Is there a way to populate that form field on form #2 from the first form? That way the person doesn't have to enter their address twice?

Yes, that's possible with our prepopulation feature. We have all the steps in this guide on how you can do it:
Please check and let us know if you have questions.

With the first part of the custom url- do you just use the url that the form lives on? In the example- the url is using the form.jotform url.
Also- do the forms have to be identical in order to work? My first form only has one form field and the second form has 6 form fields.

Yes, just append the question mark than the rest of them.
No, the forms don't need to be identical. What's important is the field name. It needs to be correct. Otherwise, the prepopulation won't work.
We can help you build the URL if you cannot figure it out.

Hmm- anyway you can tell me what I did wrong with connecting these 2 forms?
Someone fills out this form: http://www.winwinfps.com/home/ (enter your address)
Then the page redirects to this page: http://www.winwinfps.com/request-home-quote/
and the enter your address form field is filled out already from the initial form.
Form 1: https://form.jotform.com/72755247758167
Form 2: https://form.jotform.com/72784139458166
