    Hi there,

    If I understood correctly you want to prepopulate data from one form to another? If yes then please check the guide below.

    Not exactly, I want to populate different options (hidden) in the form. For example if I selection option1 from the dropdown I get multiple choice selection, when option2 it would display a text box etc. On one selection it shows something on the other selection shows something else. Basically on selection it shows hidden field(s) of the form,  depends which selection you made, before you hit submit button. 

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Yes, that's actually possible using the Conditional logic feature. You'll have to use the SHOW/HIDE field condition. Kindly check the guide below, and it should help you achieve what you are trying to accomplish.
