    I am trying to have data transfer from one form to the next. I have followed the step by step guide you have, but for some reason it is not working.

    This is the link for my "form 1"

    https://form.jotform.com/92693544641161


    This is the link for my "form 2"

    https://form.jotform.com/92693964730166?pleaseConfirm3={whatIs}&pleaseConfirm={whatIs9}&pleaseConfirm5={phoneNumber}


    my goal is to have info from form 1 transfer to form 2 so the user can easily fill out the second form any suggestions?

    I am afraid that you can not pass a value from a text field to a single choice field like this. Please note that our demo forms use identical fields. You can check and test our demo forms from here:

    You can also check again our guide here:

    Please try to follow the guide step by step and let us know, if you need further assistance.

    If i used the same fields in Form 2 would it than work? For example, when asking for name, phone, email, those questions will be identical. but than I would have a whole new series of questions their after?

    Yes, if you use same fields, it should work fine.

    You can also have additional questions on your second form. This should not affect the prepopulated fields.

    Please give it a try and let us know, how it goes.

    We will wait for your response.

    Every thing seems to be working good, thank you. Also, how do I set this up using multiple choice questions.

    https://form.jotform.com/92693964730166?whatIs37[first]={whatIs:first}&whatIs37[last]={whatIs:last}&whatIs38={whatIs9}&whatIs39={phoneNumber}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_0}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_1}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_2}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_3}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_4}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_5}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_6}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_7}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10_8}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#other_10}&whatCertification={whatCertification10:#input_10

    This is the example url I have now. I am trying to transfer the information from question "What certification / training do you have? (Check all the apply)" in form 1 to the exact same question in form 2

    For Checkboxes, this is how we get the value from Form 1:

    checkBox6={checkBox:0},{checkBox:1},{checkBox:2}

    The right side shows using ":" (colon) again. But we will use numbers after it. These are indexes to identify the check boxes. There are 3 check boxes in the demo form, which means I need to have indexes "0", "1" and "2". You can find this under the Properties window of the check box field. Separate each of them using a comma.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Please use the following for a dropdown:

    dropDown4={dropDown}

    Please try the following for the other option:

     ?whatDriving={whatDriving:0},{whatDriving:1},{whatDriving:2},{whatDriving:3},{whatDriving:4},{whatDriving:5},{whatDriving:6},{whatDriving:7},{whatDriving:8},{whatDriving:9},{whatDriving:10},{whatDriving:11}&whatDriving[other]={whatDriving:other}

    Please test and let us know, if you need any futher assistance.
