    We are upgrading to the Bronze level. Love what Jotform can do at the FREE level. However, I am not proficient at doing something I need for our site. 

    I have read the guide on how to move data from one form to another and it's like reading a foreign language. LOL Is there phone support or video tutorials that can help me with this?

    I have an exam that I want some of the client's answers forwarded to another form that they complete later. I'm hoping this is not too difficult for me but with some help, I might be able to do this.

    Thanks so much!

    Just to confirm, do you want to move the form field to another form or do you want to move the form field and data to another form?

    We do have these following:

    https://apps.jotform.com/app/combine_submissions 

    https://apps.jotform.com/app/field_manager

    We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    Hi, John,
    I have an exam that I would like the items that the client checks from the
    checklists to auto flow to another different form.
    Ex. The client checks their talents from a long list and only the ones
    checked would autoflow into a field on their resume. Can those checked
    include a coma in the resume field? Except for the last one?
    Thanks... I'm in over my head!

    I successfully added the field manager and it worked great. However, I only
    want the DATA entered from 1st form to dump into 2nd form.
    Is this possible?

    Do you mean to say you to pass the field data from one form to another form after submission? If yes, here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    To have comma-separated values, combine them into a single field but the comma must be defined after every option except the last one in the widget settings.

    Example:

    To combine their values, you can use the form calculation widget. Here's a visual guide:

    Then use the combined values when you pass it to a field on another form.
