    Can I Pipe the response of a previous item entry into another one on the next page?

    Asked by wilmer318 on June 19, 2010 at 09:43 PM
    I am not able to figures out how to pipe an entry from one page to the next. Is this possible on this site? I would like to copy an entry from one page to the next so that the user does not have to fill it in again if the response does not need to be changed.Other than that I love the site!

    Why don't you just create a multi-page form instead. You can create a multi-page form by adding "PageBreak" to your forms from "Survey Tools".

    Well I am having my user fill out what is call a "policy" and if they want to create more then one policy with just a minor change to the first one I would like to just copy it. This way they don't have to fill it all out again for the second policy. The only way I knew of copying it was to use a pipe. Is there another way to copy something from an entry made before?

    I see what you mean. Unfortunately, it is not possible to do what you describe without some coding.

    What you can do is to use "Send Post Data" feature to send user data to the Thank You page and the use PHP code to pass this data to the form using pre-population.

    Your solution does not work to well for me but I thank you any ways for the suggestion.

    Is there any way we could get this added to an enhancement list or something. I have looked at a few other sites that provide this capability but I don’t like the over all site as much as this site. I would like to keep my forms here.
