    Asked on September 12, 2014 at 12:13 AM


    Is there any way to display a hyperlink in a form that is populated using data that has been entered into the form?

    For example, I want to send users to another Jotform after they filled data in the first form and create a URL string that will pre-populate the second form from data in the first. However, they CAN'T use the Submit button.

    How would you go about this?

    In my original note, I said that the user CAN'T use the Submit button. Does your solution work without the submit button? I'm using the 'session' trick to save the form so can't use Submit until the form is complete.

    If users can't hit the submit button then the best solution might be adding a calculation field:

    And in the formula insert manually the url and then add the field you wish to pre-populate:

    Depending on the amount of fields you wish to pre-populate this formula might be more complex.

    You can test and clone the demo form:
