    How can I create a form that can pass a parameter from form1 to form2?

    Asked by Christian  on March 27, 2015 at 12:50 PM

    Example:

    The forms is like a wizard process form.

    Form 1 contains First Name and Last Name required field, when I click the button Next, I will redirect to Form 2. The Form 2 also contains First Name and Last Name but I want to make it the same fields will be already filled up. I want to get the parameters from form 1 to form 2 for better user experience for the customer.

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    It is possible to place a dynamic prepopulation link to the Thank You Page on your first form.

    1. First of all, you will need to get the field {tags}, you can get them from Notification email. Then, you will use them in your dynamic prepopulation URL.

    2.  For example, lets try to prepopulate email address field on the second form based on data that user submitted from the first form. According to the previous screenshot, {yourEmail16} tag is responsible for E-mail field on initial form.

    Now time to add dynamic prepopulation link to the Thank You Page of first form.

    So to see this live, please enter test data on this form : http://form.jotformeu.com/form/21106494481350

    Now let's see the dynamic prepopulation URL to the second form:

    http://form.jotformeu.com/form/21106785005345?email18={yourEmail16}

    If this is not what you were looking for or if you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
