    Hello Nathan,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Could you please provide us with the details of your concern so we can assist you better? Do you mean you want to prefill fields from the previous submission upon clicking fill out a form? Prefilling your form using another form is easy. Let me show you how:

    1. Open your form in Form Builder, then click on Publish in the orange navigation bar at the top of the screen.
    2. Now, click on Prefill in the menu on the left side of the screen, and then select Form Prefill.
    3. Select the form that you want to prefill from, then choose the fields you want to take data from.
    4. Click on Save Settings, and that’s it.

    If that’s not exactly what you’re looking for, can you explain a bit more so I can help you better? Keep us updated and let us know if you need any more help.

    Reach out again if you have any other questions

    No, its okay I figured out a work around. I have a move in inspection check list that is REALLY LONG and I wanted to enter the qty of each item myself so that when the tenant moves in, they can verify / confirm it.
    I basically just started a form, entered all the information and just saved it and sent the saved link to the tenants.
