    Hello, 

    As you did not mention your form URL, we are unable to provide the exact URL as it would depend on the fields' name, but you can consider using our Field Prepopulator feature instead which will automatically populate the URL for your need.

    It seems you are looking to pass another field's value to the Product List field. Unfortunately, it's not possible.

    The user should manually select the products they prefer inside the said field.

    We can't even use Jotform Prepopulator app as suggested by my colleague since product/payment fields are not supported by the app.

    Thank you.

    NO, the other way round, I am looking to pass a field that has been entered in the Product List to another form.

    I presume, this, too, is not available

    Hi there,

    Kindly note that we can only capture total amount from the product list widget; so, only this value can be passed over to another form.

    If this is not what you need, please elaborate your requirement; we might be able to suggest you a workaround or escalate your requirement further to the Backend team.

    Thank you!
