    Hi Julius,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. If I have to pass data from one form to another, I can do so by using the URL parameters and saving it inside the Thank You Page of the first form.

    For example, my first form has an Email and a Full Name field. The unique name of the Email field is {email} while it's {name} for the Full Name field. Check out the screencast below about finding out the unique name of a field:

    My second form has a Phone and an Email field. I have noted down the unique names of Phone {phoneNumber} and Email field {email}.

    What I am trying to achieve is that when I submit the first form, it sends out the data from the Email field on the first to the second form. To do so, I will use the following URL inside the Thank You Page of the first form:
    https://www.jotform.com/231593207734053?email={email}

    To break that down, 231593207734053 is the Form ID of my second form.
    ? is a separator.
    email is the unique name of the Email field from the second form that will receive the data.
    {email} is the unique name of the Email field from the first form that will send data.

    I get the following results when I submit my first form to see the data being transferred to the second form:

    That's it. Let us know if you have any other questions.
