    Hello abcmanagement,

    I would suggest you pre-populate your second form using our app http://prepopulate.jotform.io/. This will help you generate the URL a lot easier. Once the URL is generated you can replace the values with the field names from your form 1.

    If you would like to pre-populate all the fields then, it will be really very long link. Are you trying to pre-populate all the fields on your form?

    Information you need from form 1:

    -field name (see image below)

    From the above image, we will be needing the Name which is {enterCode}. Take note of the names of all the fields you want to prepopulate.

    Now, get the URL generated before. Let's say the URL genearted from http://prepopulate.jotform.io/ is: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41366210555954?enterCode=12546853 

    enterCode is actually the name of the field, in your case, it could be different. It could be email or name. Replace the value (the numbers in red after the equal sign) with the field name we obtained from form 1. This will give us now a URL of: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41366210555954?enterCode={enterCode}

    Do the same thing on all fields you want to prepopulate, replacing all the value (any number/letters between the equal sign (=) and the ampersand (&) with something like {enterCode}, {name}, etc.

    Now, we need the complete URL in the custom thank you page URL. Here's how:

    And you're done. See my example form live in action HERE.

    Please let us know if you need further help.
