Is there a way to automatically populate a Header (or other section of text) with the Form title?

    I noticed that on "questions on a separate page" or "Cards" style forms that this happens automatically. I'd like to find a way to do it with the regular "all questions on one page" form, however.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Please check my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/80607097524964

    Is that what you're trying to achieve? If not, please let us know.

    In the demo form, the Short Text Entry field is passing the data to the Text field (as Header of the page).

    Hey John,

    I'm not sure if your demo form is what I want or not. I've included some screenshots to show you what I'm talking about. Maybe that will make it easier?


    I want to take the Title of a form, like the one here:

    ...and have it automatically show up in the Header section (where it currently says "Reader Book Request Form" here:


    1520037790screenshot-form.jotform.com-20

    Here's a link to the form used in the above images, in case you need to take a look at it: https://form.jotform.com/80596506984976


    Thanks for your help!

    Thank you for providing more details.

    Unfortunately, you need to edit the Header Text field manually.
