    I am sorry I am not able to fully understand the question, do you want to clone the form you have created? If so please follow instructions on this link on how to do that. If this is not your question can you please explain a little bit more.

    Nope. 


    I want to take information from one form submission and use it for another form submission. 


    Example: 

    Name: BOB
    Appt Date: 1/2/17

    Submit and Copy


    Open another form with: 
    Name: BOB
    Appt Date: 1/2/17

    Thank you for the clarification. To achieve this you need to store the data in a Database and then to call the database to retrieve those data. That is not possible to be accomplish with Jotform. My recommendation would be to download the full source code of the form and apply some PHP/MySQL programming to meet this requirement. Below there are some guides on how to do that.
