    Hi,

    I am looking at whether passing information from form to form is possible within the mobile app.

    We have shared employee tablets, when someone begins a job they fill out the first form that includes vehicle and job information. When they move on to the next form I'd like to pass that data to prevent them from having to reinput that info. I was initially looking at sticking it all on one form, but it's starting to become a little unwieldy with 4 different forms in one.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, that's not possible with the mobile app at the moment. I will escalate this as a feature request so this will be hopefully considered in the future updates.

    Here's a solution for desktop or on mobile if you're using the mobile browser not the app https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    For the app, I understand that you won't prefer it but the workaround I could only think is by consolidating everything into a single form. You can use page break in case you want to separate each form into different pages.

    Thanks

    Not a problem, I will continue on with a single form.

    As a side question, do the offline forms have a size limit with how much data can be saved for later? The document is fairly large and requires information to be added to it over a 12+ Hour period. Wouldn't want our employees to experience any data loss due to the size of the form.

    Thanks!
