    I have created a 2 part form,  First part is Name, number phone, and email, then a submit button to the second form: address, job.. is there a way to transfer the info from the first form to the second form?


    If I receive a few forms at a time, it’s hard to tell which form belongs to which form.

    I understand that you want to have the same or some fields of first form on the second form so that the data can be transferred to the second form for easy identification.

    You can use dynamic prepopulating the fields from one form to another by using the tags. You'll need to note down the field names from both forms that you want to transfer from their respective field properties. Assuming you are transferring First Name, Last Name and Email address to second form, you'll need to add First Name and Last Name fields on the second form. Since you are already having Confirm Email text box, we can use this for email. If you want this to be entered by the customer for validation, you'll need to add another field. You may also hide the newly added fields on the second form if necessary.

    1. Right-click on the field and select Show Properties to note down the field name.

    We'll need to note down the field names for First Name, Last Name and email address. The field names that I got from form one are firstName2, lastName, email and for the second form are firstName, lastName, confirmEmail.

    Now, the prepopulated URL of the second form should be something like below :{firstName2}&lastName={lastName}&confirmEmail={email}

    This URL will be placed as the custom Thank you URL on your first form. You can test it using the following cloned JotForm of yours.
