    You can connect only one field to Trello Members, right? If so, the option would be to submit form several times. Or you can connect second smaller form to first one and populate it with additional member value. Let's say, when first main form is submitted, it redirects to second one and populates it with second member. Then, second form should push another member to Trello.

    If this will not help too, please provide some more information on how you link Trello members so we tried on our end.

    I can pass on the data to another form but is there a way to auto submit that form?

    Of course, Global Countdown widget should do the trick:

    You can set it to 1 second or so.

    Actually im now not sure if this will work - ha

    i'd love it to but - in the new form to add the additional trello member i would have to updating an existing card that i created from the last form.

    The options here for which card to add a member to doesnt allow a variable - just a predefined name that already exists. am i going about this the wrong way?

    Many Thanks in advance.

    Okay, what about creating cards by email as additional or standalone way of passing data? 

    Here is what I found: https://help.trello.com/article/809-creating-cards-by-email 

    It looks like multiple members can be added by email.

    Thank you for your reply - i have contacted trello also in regards to this issue i am having. 

    with what i can currently see. the creating cards via email is not what i would be requiring at the stage of when the automatic 2nd form is filled out. this is because a card would of already been created via the completion of form 1. form 2 would in this case need to add a member to an already existing card. Does this make sense?

    or is there another/alternative approach to this that i could try to get more than one member added to a card via a form completion?

    Many Thanks,

    I think you should pass all members to Trello at once. Without splitting form to 2 parts, could you please check if that will help to achieve what you need?

    thank you for your reply -

    this brings us full circle however as this is what I was trying to do originally in my first post. It hasn’t been successfully so far (I can’t seem to add more than one member with one submission) 

    I feel like maybe it interprets the requested multiple names as one name 

    (I don’t know, I may be inputting something incorrectly) 

    refer to original post 

    I really hope this is possible as a lot hinges on our paying use of JotForm for this feature 

    kindest regards

    I have tested this multiple times with different methods, and none worked so far. The integration is designed only to allow you to select one field at a time which, unfortunately, does not let you add multiple member names. 

    I have raised this thread to our backend team to allow multiple integrations, maybe, in a form or allow adding more rows for the Members option.
