    How to concencate values from 2 different fields into one

    Asked by branzburg on January 28, 2015 at 07:43 AM

    I was trying to get this feature to work with text. If I have a field "NAME" and a field "CITY" can it concatenate the two fields? For example, if the NAME field contains "Joe" and the CITY field contains "London" I'd like a 3rd field to automatically contain "Joe London"

    You can create that by using conditions - Update a Form Field value option

    Once you do that, you can set them up like so:

    One thing to note is that if the button is orange, you are adding numbers, while if the button is blackish, you are adding text.

    *Clicking on the a-z or 0-9 in the right corner switches from one to another.

    You can see a sample of this in action here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50265032266953

    Do let us know how it goes and if you want to clone the jotform to inspect it further, please follow these steps: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL.

    Hello prlabs,

    "With the new conditions interface I can't insert text values into text fields anymore."

    You should be able to inset text values in text field with the new conditions wizard as well. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
