How to pass data from one form to another?

    I went into the source code as per your example. However, those codes did not come up on my form.

    I've located the field for prepopulating the email address as the linking field between the first form and the second form. However, the question remains as to how to use it. I'm guessing that it would be a hidden and prepopulated field on the second form.

    TESTING MY FORM: I'm trying to test my form. I'm at a point of verifying my email address. I've been sent the verification code. I enter it. And then it doesn't move forward. I've gone back in to turn off the only 1 submission and set it to NO CHECK.

    It's still not advancing.

    I just went in to clear my cache. I'll close JotForm and try again.

    I'm going to turn off the Use Verification Code and that will probably make a difference. However, ideally, I would like to have the email verified.

    Okay, it worked beautifully.

    But again, optimally, I would really like to be able to send them a verification code. It's so easy to do that, but naturally, the feature needs to work properly.

    Thanks for your help on this matter. It is definitely helping me to make a lot of progress quickly.

    While I'm at it, do you have tutorials on using your widgets?

    Thank you tons, tons, TONS !!!

    If you're looking to pass data from one form to another, then  I would recommend you to follow this guide instead: 

    the question remains as to how to use it

    This will depend on what you want to do, you may set the field on the second form hidden and simply capture the email or leave it visible.
