    Hi, 

    quick question

    I know you can but I don`t remember how to pass information (input) from one for to another. 

    let`s say a user fills out a form, I ask him/her if interested in additional services. I would like them to be redirected to a new form and populate the new form with some of the data from the first one. 

    How do I do that? 
    thank you

    Hi.... very confusing :(

    can I ask for your help to pass 3 fields form one form to another? Please :) 

    source form https://form.jotform.com/201415307821950

    to

    Destination form https://form.jotform.com/201625807959970

    I want to be able to know that the same person has filled both forms. 

    can you help me produce the URL that I will later send via email.... 

    thank you in advance

    We will be glad to do it. Please put this in your default Thank You page, external link option, or in the email notification of the first form:

    https://form.jotform.com/201625807959970?input70[last]={input70:last}&input70[first]={input70:first}&input72={input72}&input80={input80}

    hi, 

    Thank you so much... :) 

    What do I need to do in case both forms are embedded in my website and have a page URL?

    thank you

    You can embed the second form with the iFrame embed code and append the URL parameters to the webpage URL. 

    Example:

    http://www.yourwepage?input70[last]={input70:last}&input70[first]={input70:first}&input72={input72}&input80={input80}

    HI, 

    I tried this url and I was redirected to my homepage and not to the second form

    https://mazekal.co.il?input70[last]={input70:last}&input70[first]={input70:first}&input72={input72}&input80={input80}


    I tried this url and I was redirected to a 404 page and not to the second form

    https://mazekal.co.il/201625807959970/?input70[last]=v&input70[first]=c&input72=shd@gmail.com&input80=435


    These are the 2 pages where I have embedded the 2 forms.... what am I doing wrong? 

    in both cases, I put the above URL's in the thank you page


    form1 - https://mazekal.co.il/test-pass-info-1/

    form 2 - https://mazekal.co.il/test-pass-info-2/


    thank you

    Hi there,


    The second form should contain the customized URL, so it should look like this: https://mazekal.co.il/test-pass-info-2?input70[last]={input70:last}&input70[first]={input70:first}&input72={input72}&input80={input80}

    This URL should be on the First form so when the form is filled out, either redirecting to the page via email submission, a user can click on this and whatever entries on the First form is passed.

    Let us know if how it goes.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Best.

    Hi there,

    Actually, you were on the right track, assuming that you were on the second form, you just need to fill out the fields for it to be include on the URL which is you one you need to copy not the shared link, all that's left is for you to replace the value which enclosed on brackets "{}" with the Unique ID of the fields on the first form.

    Here is a screen cast:

    I hope that makes sense.

    Let us know if you have further questions.

    Best.
