How to pass data from one form to another?

    Asked on February 12, 2018 at 12:40 AM

    I want to create a custom URL to send the link from my first form (Camp Supervisor New Hire Form) to pre-populate my second form (Welcome to YMCA Day Camp). Is this something you can help with creating?

    All the fields in the first form are not needed, but some are.

    All the fields in my second form which would pre-populate from identical fields in my first form are below.

    Thank you for responding. I know it is possible, I cannot seem to get it right. I could not generate a pre-populated URL either through so this is the one I created.

    Here is the URL I have:[first]={supervisorName21:first_21}&si[supervisorname[last]={supervisorName:last_21}&supervisorEmail= {supervisorEmail43}&supervisorTitle={supervisorTitle}&employeeName[first]={employeeName:first_20}& employeeName[last]={employeeName:last_20}& validatedEmail={validatedEmail}&centerName={ centerName38}&input_36={employeeActive:105_0},{employeeActive:105_1},{employeeActive:105_2}&campEmployee={campEmployee13:13_0},{campEmployee13:13_1},{campEmployee13:13_2}&input_44= {daycamp:input_80_0}, {daycamp:input_80_1},{daycamp:input_80_2},{daycamp:input_80_3},{daycamp:input_80_4},{daycamp:input_80_5},{daycamp:input_80_6},{daycamp:input_80_7}&whichcamp={whichCamp}&backgroundcheck={backgroundCheck}&effectivestartDate={startDateeffective37}&trainingstipend40={trainingStipend}&input_12={scheduledHours}&input_48={stipendAmount}&totalStipend={totalStipend}&hourlypay={hourlyPay}

    It is only passing the Supervisor email and Supervisor Title so I think I am doing something wrong. Please help! Could you look it over and help me fix it. 

    Thanks very much.

    You need to make sure to get the right names of the fields. You can do it using the "inspect element" of your browser, example:


    So, to pass the Supervisor's first and last name, the URL should be this:[first]={supervisorName21:first}&supervisorName[last]={supervisorName21:last}

    Not this:[first]={supervisorName21:first_21}&si[supervisorname[last]={supervisorName:last_21}
