    Hi , here is my notification submission in email. I also attached with the link for the responder to answer through this code number. My purpose is the form which provided by link below ( in notification submission ) will auto use the ID number of CBC 0034 to complete the second form ( the link in notification submission ). 
    Therefore the responder will no need to type ID number again. I mean this will be linked together.

    If I understood correctly, you want to pass the Unique ID that is created in your first form to the second form. 

    Inside of this guide, you can find how to pass form data to another form:

    If I understand the requirements correctly, you would like to make the form respondent have the second form auto-populated with the Unique ID value that is generated in the first form. 

    Please follow these steps:

    1) I used Unique ID widget, Short Text Entry field and Get Page URL widget.

    2)  When the user submits the form for the first time, the autoresponder shows the redirect link to the user. The user can see the unique ID for the second submission.

    3) You can redirect to user to your form on Autoresponder settings.

    URL :{typeA} 

    You need to copy the field's unique name which is uniqueID or typeA.

    4) After the second submission, the form will send autoresponder email to the user contains "Thank you" message.

    You are trying to pass the Unique ID from the form to the form, correct?

    You need to add the Short Text Entry field inside of your second form to which you will pass the Unique ID form your first form. 


    In my form the Unique Name of this field is uniqueId8

    This is the link of my second form

    The Unique name of Unique ID field in my first form is uniqueid

    This is my prepopulated link that I added to the Email Notification and Autoresponder email of my first form -{uniqueid}


    Here is my form - 

    Feel free to test it and clone it
