    Hi again,

    I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Could you please elaborate? What I can state is that in order to return (display) just the first name in the email of your most recently edited jotform the tag should be {fullName3:first} but I'm not sure if this is what you're referring to.

    Thanks

    Sorry,

    I have a form where the customer fills out their first and last name. In that form I call to a photo release form and an NDA.  I refer to these separate forms via url. So that the forms open up in separate tabs with the customer's name filled and the customer will just have to click a check box and hit submit and these files will be sent separately.

    The way I am doing this is editing the main document to add this:

     

    <a target="_blank" href="http://form.jotform.ca/form/50563889400257?fullName4[first]={fullname3:first}" >Non-disclosure Terms and Conditions </a>

     

    What I want is the the values John Smith carried over. What I get in the first and last name fields are {fullName3:first} and {fullName3:last} I assume I am making a simple mistake here. I am not a pro at this, just hacking at some forms to make them easier to use.

    I found out from my own post that the variables cannot be passed without submit, so I'll have to rethink how I am going to do this.

    OK. I assume I can have this pass off to the "thankyou page" So I'll try that. And just have page 1 of 3, page 2 of 3 etc.
