    how to link data between two jotforms and change static into dynamic data

    Asked by FAB_Kris on April 08, 2014 at 03:31 AM

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/282764-can-i-link-specific-responses-in-one-form-to-another-form

    I followed the steps on the above link to link data between one form to another. I do not know code and am a novice. How would i change the below to allow the second form to have dynamic data depending on how the first form is filled out?

    I have spent hours trying to work it out and am getting nowhere. as you can see i'm a novice. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    If you set conditions on the prepopulated form, they will work just like if the fields were manually filled. So, let's say you configured a condition to show the Description of Issue to be Rectified field if Shanghai Store is selected in the Store Location dropdown. Here's how it would work:

    First, manually select Shanghai Store in the following clone:

    http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40973067603961

    As you can see, the "Description of Issue ..." field is displayed.

    Now, click this link which prepopulates the form and you'll see that the same thing happens. If you were to change the part in the URL which prepopulates the Store Location with Shanghai Store to Beijing Store, the "Description of Issue ..." field won't be shown.

    Is that what you meant?
