    Can I pass field values from a non-Jotform lightbox form to a Jotform one?

    Asked by ronaldlthomas on April 22, 2014 at 12:26 PM

    I want to create a multiple page form that is hosted on our website, but I'm not sure how to do this. 

    I've tried using a thank you page for the second part of the form but I would want the values filled out in the first part of the form to autopopulate. I've attempted this without sucess using the instructions provided in this forum link:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/343032-Multi-page-form-with-lightbox

    This app seems to work if the form is hosted on jotform but not if its hosted on our site.

     

    So User goes to FORM 1http://www.thingsremembered.com/content.jsp?pageName=111111

    Then is redirected to FORM 2http://www.thingsremembered.com/content.jsp?pageName=businesspopuplanding

    Where the values filled out in FORM 1 are already filled out in FORM 2.

     

    I don't think page break will work because the first part of the form needs to be a popup window that when filled out directs to a landing page.

    The first form was not created in Jotform, right?

    This workaround to populate fields from one form another is guaranteed to work just when the first and second forms are created in Jotform.

    We would recommend you to create the first form in Jotform too, so that you can easily pass its values to the second form. With Jotform you can also embed your form as LightBox to your form, here is how to get the LightBox code for your form: How to create a Lightbox form

    That way the data will be passed to the second form with no issues.

    Inform us if you need further assistance with this query.

    Thanks

    Helo ronaldthomas,

    Your first form (http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40995550424963) redirect thank you page is going directly to http://www.thingsremembered.com/content.jsp?pageName=businesspopuplanding. This would still be possible but it won't populate the second form with the data you have on the first form. It may also be possible if you can create the second page on the root directoty of your website.
