How do I populate fields from a current logged in Registered User?

    A Visitor registers by entering the required personal info and creating a User Account.

    Once a User Account has been created, the User then logs in to their account. The form that they are about to fill out will populate the fields with the information already provided in the registration process. 

    I have a registration form with a User ID# field, but not really sure how to pass the information on to another form.

    Please point me in the right direction.

    I admit that I'm not a PHP programmer, but some stuff I can muddle through given enough time.

    Thanks!

    BJoanna,

    This is useful information but not the direction I need.

    The information to pre-populate the JotForm doesn't come from another JotForm. It originates from WP-Client (a WordPress plugin).

    Perhaps this will give you a better idea of what I am trying to do and how to answer me.

    Please let me know if you need further information.

    Thanks!

    Hello @JeffreyJohnson,

    Thank you for the additional information.

    Another option might be with a pre-populated embedded form is to use this app to pre-populate the field(s): http://prepopulate.jotform.io/. Copy the parameters and paste in your WordPress website where the form is located.
