pass data to another form

    Is there a reason that brackets don't seem to pass through properly? I have two forms setup:

    Form 1:

    Form 2:

    When form 1 completes, we have an email sent to the user that allows them to continue with Form 2. We have a link created that is designed to move pertinent data from form 1, to form 2. This is what the link looks like in the email builder within JotForm:

    complete your Application here

    Yet, when a user actually clicks on the link, they don't see the "brackets" that indicate first/last name in the contact field. It shows like this when clicked:;howDid=Customer%20Referral

    How can I address this? Thank you in advance!

    I have checked your URL parameter and it seems there is an issue with the URL parameter in your email.


    Correct URL should be :{businessName6}&contactName[first]={contactInformation:first}&contactName[last]={contactInformation:last}&email={emailAddress}&mobilePhone182={phoneNumber}&selectYour={businessType11}&howDid={howDid}

    Please check it out and let us know if you have further questions.
