    I'm trying to have my form, MCS (No CHS) All Grades open another form upon submission. The form I want it to open is Consent for School Health Services but when I submit the MCS form the Consent form does not open and I'm not sure why. I do receive the submitted form however. I'm also trying to have data passed from the MCS form to the Consent form. If you could take a look & tell me what I'm doing wrong I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Howdy Legina,

    I have inspected this form and I see that the URL you're redirecting to has a typo. Please remove the extra 3 from the end of the form ID in your redirect URL.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    Ok, so I removed the "3" and the Consent for Health Services form does open up after submission of the first form now. Thank you! However, the data that I'm trying to pass to the CHS form is not showing up. I'm sure I didn't do something correctly. Could you please take a look? Thanks.

    Ok, I've tried a couple more times to get this to work & I'm still not doing something correctly. If you would take another look it would be helpful. Thanks.

    Howdy Legina,

    I apologize for any confusion, the references are backwards in the link. We should be defining the new field first and then supplying the information from the original field name. However, here is the URL that should work for this situation:

    https://form.jotform.com/212924607888064?studentLast={2Student5}&studentFirst={3Student6}&childsBirth={4Student9}&grade={5Grade422}&schoolThis={1School420}&streetAddress={7Home433}&city={8City55}&zip={9Zip56}

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    Ok, so now it passes all info from the first form to the second except for the birthdate. Any suggestions on that? I've double checked the unique name of those fields and there are correct in the URL. Thanks again.

    Greetings Legina.

    Unfortunately, you can't pass date fields between forms if you are using the lite format. You will have to disable this from the field settings:

    screenshot_8034.png

    This will separate day, month, and a year in separate fields. Your users will still be able o use a popup calendar to select the date:

    screenshot_8035.png

    Then, instead of using childsBirth={childsBirth}, you need to use childsBirth[day]={childsBirth:day}&childsBirth[month]={childsBirth:month}&childsBirth[year]={childsBirth:year}

    Let us know if this solution works for you.

    I have tried using the data sent in the most recent email which was:

    childsBirth[day]={childsBirth:day}&childsBirth[month]={childsBirth:month}&childsBirth[year]={childsBirth:year}

    This still does not send the child's birthdate from MCS enrollment to the Consent for Health Services form. I have turned off "lite" in both forms as suggested also.

    Please try this: (The only difference is the month and day switched places)

    childsBirth[month]={childsBirth:month}&childsBirth[day]={childsBirth:day}&childsBirth[year]={childsBirth:year}

    Please add that to the link. Please make sure that there's "&" before adding it.

    Vincent--I tried the change that you made & was sure to include "&" but it still doesn't pass the date of birth from the MCS form to the Consent form. Maybe it's just not possible to pass a date field. Thanks.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    The link is just an example. It should work with the correct field name, may we know what is the main form where the data will be coming from?

    Here's a test form redirecting to your form and populating the Date field: https://form.jotform.com/213155834069054. You can submit a test submission to see the result.

    1636751093_618ed6f58b868_vabat21.gif

    Here's what it should look like:

    1636751431_618ed847de030_avc2r1a.png

    The childsBirth[month] is the field name from your second form where it will be populated with the {date:month} from the first form field name.

    Note: The link on the screenshot is from my demo form only.

    Please share the 1st form and we will check the field name. We'll wait for your response. Thank you!

    The main form is MCS All Grades New Student Enroll Pack; the second form is
    the Consent for School Health Services. Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    {4Date:day} {4Date:month} {4Date:year}

    Should be used for the first form with the corresponding tags on the second form fields that you would like to use.

    Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

    Have an amazing day.
