    Hi Jotform Team,

    You can do this by using global countdown in this way, when you redirected to form2, it will wait for a second then will be submitted. Now, let me explain you how can do this starting with passing data between forms. Please take these steps:

    1) Learn field names of both forms. You can do these steps on each field: choose field -> click options -> click advanced -> click field details and you will see unique name and that is.

    2) Create a url for prepopulation by using field names.

    like that :link_of_the_form2?field1_name_in_form2={field1_name_in_form1}&field2_name_in_form2={field1_name_in_form1}.... and so on.

    3) In form1, instead of directing users to thank you page direct them to the prepopulation url you created one step before. You can do this by taking following steps:

    In form builder, click to settings then click thank you page then click redirect to external link and paste the link.

    4) Add global countdown widget to form2 then click widget and click widget settings then set seconds to 1. Also, to hide the global countdown add the following css code to your form2:

    iframe[src*="countdown"] {

    display : none;


    That's all.

    I also created two very basic form to implement this you can examine them by cloning.

    Form1: https://form.jotform.com/92383471188970

    Form2: https://form.jotform.com/92382815064964
