    Passing form details between forms

    Asked by KingstonIT on November 05, 2013 at 10:20 AM

    Hi guys

    I have seen something similar on the FAQ's so just point me back there if my scenario is the same.

    I have a site with 3 pages. 1 form on 1st page who's info need to be supplied to a second page with a different (another) form.

    Then on Submit i need to insert the info from both forms together by either custom thanks page or whatever.

    So its Passing first form details to a second page that contains another form - with both forms data submitted on 2nd click .

    Is there any way  i can do this?

    So, both data from first and second form should be populated to the third form? That is possible with our Send Post Data method, please check this guide: Send POST Data From JotForm Using PHP in Custom Thank You Page

    You can use a hidden fields to the second form to capture all the information from the first form then pass the value from the hidden fields of the second form to the third form. Say, you have 5 fields in the first form, you also have to add five hidden fields to the second form. This is to capture each first form field individually. Then, capture the hidden fields value to the third form.

    Basically, a two or three way process but all could be automatic if the setup will be done right.

    a. Setup Send Post Data to the first form (first form to second form)

    a. Setup Send Post Data to the second form (second form to third form)

    Will try to come for an example later today if needed. Do let us know if you are confused with this process of if you need further details.
