    Hi

    I can not seem to figure this out:

    - Form 1 has a Radio Button field (Fee Schedule) for selecting either Option 1 (Fixed) or Option 2 (Hourly)

    - Form 2 has a Drop Down Menu field (Fee Schedule) with Option 1 (Fixed) and Option 2 (Hourly).


    Im trying to get the selection from Form 1 (radio button field) to pass to the corresponding option in the dropdown menu in form 2.

    I see that the information is passed into the URL but it doesnt make any changes on the Form 2's drop down field..

    Hello @AbleWealth,

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    If you would like to pass data from one form over to another you will need to utilize the form URL to do so. You will also need to ensure that you are using the correct unique codes for each field to pass data between the forms.

    I have gone ahead and created two sample forms to demonstrate how you can pass data between forms. You can follow the link below to find my first form. Fill out the form and after you submit, the answers from the first form will populate the second one.

    I used a single choice field to populate a dropdown to imitate the functionality that you are trying to achieve in your form. Do note that you will need to have the exact same options in the single choice field as the dropdown for this to work.

    If you would like to clone this form for yourself to test, you can do so by following the steps in this user guide. How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL
