    I am creating a form that clients can come back later to finish the test.  The URL link for the 1st form is: https://www.jotform.com/92393999815175

    The 2nd form is:https://www.jotform.com/92266301542148

    I am trying to Prepopulate the the name field and email address from the first form to the 2nd form.  I add the link for the name, however, the name on the second form shows the first and last name in only the first name field box.

    You have to use the redirect link in this format: https://form.jotform.com/92266301542148?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}

    You can refer to this guide for detailed information: How-to-Pre-Populate-the-Same-Form-with-Data-from-a-Previous-Submission

    You can also check our "Field Prepopulator" app which should help you generate the URL of your form with data pre-populated. Once you generate the URL with data pre-filled, you can then replace the values with the field names of the form from where you will redirect your user to this form.

    Please let me know if you are still having any difficulties and need any further help on this.

    I have also cloned your forms and tried to test this. It is working fine at my end. Please find the details below:

    Form 1: https://form.jotform.com/92395419655974

    Form 2: https://form.jotform.com/92395418653971

    You can test the above forms. When you will submit the first form, you will be immediately taken up to the next form which will have the name and other details from the first form.

    I have used this link to redirect to the second form:    https://form.jotform.com/92395418653971?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}

    Let me know if you have any questions.
