    Same question as Daniel Sarwono...are the {curlybrackets} for the source form or the target form?

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. The {curlybrackets} should be put on the target form but the content of that curlybrackets is the field name from the source form. If you need help to create the URL parameter to pass the form data to another form, give us the Target Form, Source Form and the fields that need to be passed so we can help you out. Here's the guide to locate the form URL.

    Once we hear back from you, we'll be able to help you with this.

    Hi Jeric,

    Please read/comment on my example below to ensure I understand you correctly.

    I have two forms...let's call them Form1 and Form2.

    I want to pass data from Form1 to Form2 using URL parameters.

    Form1 has a data field with the unique ID name of "customerName"

    Form2 has a data field with the unique ID name of "invoiceTo"

    I want the "customerName" data from Form1 to transfer to the "invoiceTo" field on Form2.

    My URL string would include...

    ?invoiceTo={customerName}

    Hello mediprofirstaid,

    Yes, it is possible to carry over the data from one form to another. It is possible to pass the data from the first form to the second form using the Pre-populator app. Please follow the below steps:

    • Open the Field Prepopulator app.
    • You can open the second app to populate the data in the second form's URL.
    • Add data to the field that you want to populate.
    • The second form's URL with prefilled data will be created. Grab this URL.

    Next, replace the data with the unique names from the first form.

    https://form.jotform.com/220828337141957?email=swetashaw%40jotform.com&FullName=sweta

    To get the unique name, follow this screenshot:

    So the prefilled link will be in this format:

    https://form.jotform.com/220828337141957?email={email}&FullName={FullName}

    Additionally, please go through this guide to pass data from one form to another.

    Let us know if you have any further queries.
