    Hi, I have a dropdown field with blood types and would like to pass that info to another form.

    The problem is it reads the blood types with a "+" but doesn't prepopulate the form. My understanding is that the + sign supposed to be coded "%2B"


    Is there a workaround?

    Try to encode it using URLENCODE parameter in the field name.

    Example:

    If the field name is {bloodtype}

    it becomes

    {URLENCODE:bloodtype}
