    Set default value of hidden boxes as the users' responses to previous forms

    Asked by Swags on June 23, 2011 at 09:50 AM

    My goal on my website is to have my users see a bunch of example of things they could choose then select their choice on a jotform combo box.  The submit button will be renamed "next" which will take them to the next step to select their next choice. Once they hit thet submit (next) button, they will be redirected to a custom thank you page (the next page of my website with a different form on it for them to choose from).  At the very end, the user will have gone through 5 or 6 steps in customizing exactly what they want their finished product to look like with each step using a different form (becuae I can not find a way to have a jotform form carry its information over from page to page without reloading).  On the final page, I want them to make their last selection and then, upon submission, have their results emailed to me so I can review them.  However, I want to be emailed all of their choices in one email.  therefore, I want to have hidden fields on the last step that will gather their previous selections on the other forms, that way I can receive one single, collective email of all of their selections.  is this possible?

     

    thank you!!

    Hi,

    I think you may have found a solution, seeing that you have implemented conditional logic on your form to make it as functional as possible.

    If you're still interested though, you may read this topic to learn more about passing values from one form to another. That solution, however, will require some knowledge of PHP to implement properly.

    If you have other questions or if you need clarifications on the steps done on that aforementioned solution, please let us know. Thank you.
