    Prepopulate another forms with the input data from the first form

    Asked by codered5150 on September 05, 2014 at 01:18 PM

    Hello,

     

    I have three different forms that need to be filled out and approved by 3 different people with the 3rd approval notifying the remaining individuals of the approval. Is there a way to pre-populate the second and third form with what the user put in the first form's fields? I know you can add it into the URL but these forms will change dynamically per day.

     

    Thanks!

    We do not have any built-in options to fetch the data from the database and populate it into another forms. I think that you will need to use the prepopulation by the form URL, the link can be probably generated by the form itself or with a custom programming solution.
