    Hi Billy, I'm not quite sure I fully follow you on this matter. Can you explain more about what you would like to try to do and what variable s you would be wanting to use on your form? You can apply html to your form's and which is fairly playable with many things. Additionally you can further modify them using the form's full souce code. It's actually more dependent upon what is being done so it might be possible or perhaps we might be able to come up with a workaround for it once we understand more about this question of yours.

    Hi,

    How about if you will just add the value using URL Parameters? Example: CLICK THIS LINK!

    Or,

    Adding the Content to a non-editable Text Area Field. Get the Name and pass the value to the next form URL.

    Example: 

    1. First Form with non-editable text area field: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/31785987459982?

    2. Form to be prepopulated: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/31786532772967 (http://form.jotformpro.com/form/31786532772967?={jobRequest}&location={location}&yourMessages={conditions})

    -----

    1. Right click to the text area field then set "Read Only" to "yes"

     

    Thanks
