    How Do I Have a Field (or Fields) in a Form Pre-Populated with Data Entered in Another Form?

    Asked by KenR60 on March 01, 2015 at 12:42 AM

    Hello everyone. 

    I have a Quote form created using JotForm, the customer fills out their details and what they require and a Quote form is emailed back to them.  

    I need to create an Order Form, but don't want to have them typing everything twice so was thinking if I just have a Text box asking for their email then my new JotForm can retrieve the information needed from their Quote Form.

    has someone an example or can explain how I could achieve this?


    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Ken,

    You're referring to a feature called pre-population. Please see this thread. The procedure you would follow is quite similar, the only real difference being that instead of the link being placed in the thank you page, it would go in the autoresponder. If you need clarification on anything, please let us know.
