I want to automatically prefill data in one form based on another form rather than manually doing it every-time.

    1. I have a configure list question in my first form and want to prefill only the first short answer in it to another form.
    2. If someone have added multiple lines to the configure list I want to create new form for each line item.


    e.g.
    Form 1
    Question

    Name:
    Age:
    Gender:
    +

    If someone adds multiple people by clicking on +, I want the other form to have only name column and one prefilled form of each name.

    Hi there,

    To clarify, do you mean you want to pass prefill values to the configurable list widget?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible now to pass pre-filled data to Configurable List. The reason is that the widgets use their own frames, and they are on a page inside a page. You can only prepopulate the values of standard (basic) fields.

    Though if you are referring to something else, please let usk now.

    I want a normal text field to be filled based on configurable list. The configurable list will be filled by the user and the standard field shall pull only one of the answers from the configurable list.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to read the specific cell data of the configurable list widget and pass it to a standard field of another form.

    If you want to pass the value of a text box field from one form to the text box field of another form, it is possible by taking advantage of the URL parameter feature. You may like to take a look at the following guide, which should help you: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-how-to-automatically-pass-form-data-to-another-form/

    Hope this helps.
