    Hi

    I have form 1 passing information to form 2 to enable later editing for users and to check who has started completing the form etc., one of these fields is a dropdown box, is it possible to lock the drop down pre populated box on form 2 to prevent users from changing their choice once form 2 is pre populated? Or maybe have the dropdown prepopulate a read only text box?

    Thanks

    You can create a condition to disable the dropdown field in the form 2 when filled. I made a sample for you.
    I have two forms.
    Form 1: www.jotform.com/91135092209957
    Form 2: www.jotform.com/91135444073957
    Form 1 redirects the users to form 2 when submitted.
    This is the redirection URL of form 1.
    form.jotform.com/91135444073957?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&iAm4={iAm}&email={email}
    I have created a condition for the dropdown in the form 2.
