    How Can I take check and take data from a past submission?

    Asked by KenR60 on March 05, 2015 at 03:32 AM

    I have a form which takes certain data from my buyers to send them a quotation.It gets their email address also.Now I want another form in a different page in the same site which can be used to check past submissions.That is when a user comes to new form,he enters his or her email.If it already has a submission in 1st form, then show certain data he has put in the 1st form.

    I have some more things to resolve but please let me know clearly how to do this much.

    I'm not sure if I understand your question properly. You want to populate the user's data from the previous submission to the new form? If so that's possible using URL parameters. Here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    You can place the URL in your form notification or in your form thank you page so whenever the user submits the first form, they can proceed to the second form with their data. Take note that you must use your 2nd form URL in order to achieve this or embed the form in your page using its source code, otherwise you can't populate the form fields in the 2nd form.

    Let us know if you have further questions or if you need further assistance. Thank you!
