How to properly prepopulate full name field?

    Hi, I am trying to pre-populate a name field between two forms, but I have an issue where the First Name, Initial, and Last Name from the first form are being pre-populated altogether into the First Name field of the second form.


    Example of what I input into the "Full Name" field in the first form:

    First Name: John

    Middle Initial: E

    Last Name: Appleseed


    The pre-populated result I get in the second form:

    First Name: John E Appleseed

    Middle Initial:

    Last Name:



    At the end of my link I appended:



    How should I write the link to get it to pre-populate the name field correctly?


    I also tried:



    ...but it resulted in a duplication of the name in all the fields:

    First Name: John E Appleseed

    Middle Initial: John E Appleseed

    Last Name: John E Appleseed



    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    To prepopulate the full name, the link should be constructed like this:

    15508276682019 02 22 10 26 40 Screenshot 10[first]={name:last}&name[middle]={name:middle}&name[last]={name:last}

    So, the bolded are fields in target form, and in curly brackets is what is coming from the source form.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you need any assistance.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the reply. While trying this out, I did come across a typo in the above example:[first]={name:last}name[middle]={name:middle}&name[last]={name:last}

    Which I changed this to:[first]={name:first}name[middle]={name:middle}&name[last]={name:last}

    And then your solution worked perfectly!

    Thank you so much for your help!
