    Is there a way to pre-populate the FIRST form email field? Perhaps you just explained that...but I wanted to be able to do  it without manually changing the url with each person I send it to.

    I  previously did this in FluidSurveys, but, of course, it was only possible when when I sent the form as an INVITATION to their email. 

    The way I would like to have it set up is to send an Autoresponder email formatted as as an invitation with the form link in the email.  It would send at a designated time-frame after the first email is completed.

    If something close to that is not  available, I would like to add it as a feature request.   Here  is an example of how it has been done before:

    In autoresponder template you can use users input as parameters, and create links. So you can create a link to second form and give pre-population params in template.

    Oh, I see the time-delay feature...and now I understand by not including the "session=", but only the "?email={email}", I won't have  a copy of their PREVIOUS session just the email.  

    Do you think I've got it?

    Thank you.

    Correct.  If you include ?email={email} it will take what was entered in the {email} field and pass it to the field in the form with an ID of email.  This can be done with all fields:
