    auto populate additional fields with fields already completed

    Asked by soneike on May 23, 2014 at 05:31 AM

    I want to add a indemnity to the end of the form and want some of the fields entered earlier in form reflected in the indemnity.

    Question - how do I add the field into a text area?

    Eg: I, {name added earlier in form}, blah blah blah...

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Question - how do I add the field into a text area?

    Unfortunately, that cannot be done.

    BUT you CAN autopopulate additional fields base on the value of previous field.

    That is by using the Calculation Condition 

    Here is a demo form you can check http://www.jotform.me/form/41423343721445

    I just used the Calculation Widget and set the calculation formula like this

    If what you require is a more complex "confirmation" page trick, you may want to review this guide also

    -How-to-Give-Users-the-Ability-to-Easily-Copy-Content-from-One-Field-to-Another

    It requires using the form's source code to be embedded on your own website.

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!
