    I am using this form to collect client information. 

    The first form would be strictly client information (name, number, email etc.) under there I want them to be able to pick the form that coincides with their service they will be getting (facial, massage, hair service). The idea is that they don't have to continually add their contact info for each service they want to have completed. 

    similar to this: https://jotform.com/90877349082165'


    The link below is the FULL form that I want to make into 2 different forms.

    To my understanding, you want to collect the client information and the services they want. After that, when the client wants to use the form again, you only want to collect the services data and automatically know who's client.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible. You need to collect both to avoid confusion. 

    We can create a workaround but it will require a lot of conditions and manually updating it every time someone submitted to your form.

    If I misunderstood your issue, please let us know. Thank you.

    Actually they would fill out the personal portion then click right away on the service they would be getting.

    Hi,

    Please check my demo form: 

    https://form.jotform.com/92734093579974

    In the demo form, I pass some data to another form. In this way, you do not have to collect the user information on a different form. 

    Is that what you're trying to create? If yes, here's a guide: 

    How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    If that's not what you're looking for, please share any sample form that we can test and check so we can try to replicate it. 

    Thank you.

    Kind of, 

    Here is the example I am really wanting to copy.

    I can even have them put just their name in the 2nd form where they will fill out the information for their service so I can tie the two forms together, I hope that makes sense?

    Hi @AtoleySalon,

    I can see that there are no input fields in the form you mentioned. It only includes several images with links to a specific form. So basically, there will be no information that can be passed to another form.

    I think you should have some fields that your user can fill out on this form:

    https://jotform.com/90877349082165 

    In that way, you could pass that to the intended form when he clicks one of the links. You may refer to this guide on Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Here's an example of a pre-populated URL:

    https://form.jotform.com/53533976064967?fullName[prefix]=Dr.&fullName[first]=John&fullName[middle]=Doe&fullName[last]=Smith&fullName[suffix]=M.D.&selections30=Pillow&media=Internet&address=Katipunan,ZN%207109,%20Philippines&pleaseChoose=Metal,Gold,Wood 

    Now, once you generated your own using the guide provided above, use that as the image link in your main form:

    Please try that and let us know how it goes.
