    I am able to compose prepopulate URL addresses with standard questions and input tables to transfer data to a new form.    I see that one can not do so with Configurable Lists.    Is that also the case with Narrative Field widget?

    UPD: The Narrative Fields widget can be prepopulated via URL parameters, see:

    Unfortunately, the prepopulation by URL parameters will not work for the Narrative Fields widget. Most of the form widgets are being loaded in their isolated frames and do not accept the URL parameters.

    Actually got it to work

    In Widget settings we checked "include narrative in submission"

    Form 1

    https://form.jotform.com/82125476484159

    Redirect to external link in form 1

    https://form.jotform.com/uohpartners1/narrative-field-transfer-form-2?input3={input3}

    Resulting URL

    https://form.jotform.com/uohpartners1/narrative-field-transfer-form-2?input3=I am a sentence with a  field. Look I%27m another sentence with a  field and yes with a hint!

    Form 2

    It seems you have deleted the 2nd form. When I test submitted the 1st form, it was not able to redirect properly on the 2nd form.

    As mentioned already, prepopulate URL method will not work with the widget due to reason mentioned as well. 

    The example URL you provided will not work since the field name is not {input3}

    Oh sorry, didn't realize if I deleted the unpublished form that it would not work.  I restored it.  Now you can see it is actually working.

    You are right. The generated URL does work in a way. Do note that the static texts were also included in the parameter value.
