    Is it possible to implement the following use case with your API methods?

    Let's say I have a two-page form. User answers questions on Page 1 and presses Next (not Submit). The responses to those questions will be sent to an external API and a specific information received from that API will be displayed on the page. The user will need this information to answer questions on Page 2.

    This can be done using the two forms by redirecting form respondents to your second form after submitting the first form as shown below:

    In the screenshot above, put a special link to pass data from form 1 to form 2. That special link will populate empty X field(s) in Form 2 with Y filled field(s) in Form 1 as shown below.

    Hi,

    If you just want to transfer data from Form 1 to Form 2 after the user fills Form 1, you have the option to not use the API to prepopulate Form 2.
