    Amazing tutorial except for one thing
    Redirecting a link from from1 to form2 is practically a one person 's job, because as soon as the user fills in form1 than it will automatically takes the same user to form2
    OK, how about if i want two users to fill in the same form ? is there a possible way that user1 can fill in form1 and redirect it to user2 to fill in the rest for approval. and please not prefilled because i had testing that a million times and it only works for the owners of the form not the outside users.
    kindly help!!!!

    Hi Jotform

    thank you for your response but my question is not answered yet, kindly like i said....yes the demo you demonstrated can redirect from form1 to form2 with prefilled information/data but that can only be done by one person. my question stands : how about redirecting form1 with prefilled data which is let me say half of the form filled in and redirect it to form2 but TO A DIFFERENT USER TO FILL IN AND SUBMIT AND NOT THE SAME PERSON THAT FILLED IN FORM1 ?

    I'm kindly waiting on your response.

    Hi softwarenysm

    If you wish to have a user fill form 1, and prepopulate form 2 based on the answers from form 1, this can be done by following the instructions described at How to Automatically Pass Form Data to Another Form. You will essentially need to make URL parameters to link fields from form 1 to form 2. Then use the form 2 link + the URL parameters as the thank you page URL for form 1.

    If you want to prefill the form without using data from a previously submitted form, you can do this with the URL parameters as well. We have a tool that you can use to prepopulate fields on your form. Please see Field Prepopulator. You can also visit a guide at Prepopulating Fields to Your Jotform via URL Parameters.

    Lastly, if you wish to have submitter 1 fill out form 1, and get data from form 1 to prefill form 2, then form 2 will be filled out by submitter 2. This is not supported at the moment. You can have one form filled out by multiple users by using the Approval flow, but it's not possible to have two forms working directly together with multiple submitters. If this is what you need, you may have to manually send form 2 to submitter 2 for them to fill out.

    Let us know if you need further assistance and we'd be happy to help.
