    Hello

    I have 2 forms and I wont that send the email to the 2º form.

    https://eu.jotform.com/73273025418352/?[repitaEl]=invo@redpme.se

    But it does not work. If the field that receives the form has the following name that we must give name in the url so that it captures it?
    <input type="email" id="input_23" name="q23_repitaEl" class="form-textbox validate[required, Email]" size="30" value="" data-component="email" required="">
    Should we do something additional in the form to fill it out automatically?If we work with the embedded forumlario in a web where we must pass the parameters? On the original destination website? inside the second embedded form?

    From what I can read, I can suggest that you want to pre populate an email field from one form to another. 

    Please look through this guide to make sure you paste correct parameters to your URL.

    Also, we do now have the application for populating form fields:

    Hope this helps! But, we will gladly assist you if you need more help.

    You have not answered the question. That article I already saw it and the generator of fields does not work but that part already I have it solved. The problem is that once that field arrives the new form does not auto-fill.

    To be sure we are on the same form, can you please give us URL/link of the first form ? I assume this is the second form https://eu.jotform.com/73273025418352/

    If you wanted to pass the email value from your first form to the second form, you need first to know their Unique Name.

    You can check the Unique Name on the Email Properties > Advance tab > Field Details.

    Based on the sample you gave https://eu.jotform.com/73273025418352/?[repitaEl]=invo@redpme.se

    The one highlighted with yellow above should be the Unique Name of your email without brackets.

    So the correct URL should be: https://eu.jotform.com/73273025418352/?repitaEl=invo@redpme.se

    Please check this thread if you are still having problem in passing form data from one form to another via URL.
