    Passing data or prepopulating fields using the URL parameters

    Asked by joeVenturella on April 25, 2015 at 04:50 PM

    Is it possible within JotForm to pull data from the submissions of another JotForm?  For example, I am going to create a service provider form where employees enter our industry service providers.  I am also working on creating a new customer form.  Within the customer form, I want to be able to (a) select from the service providers entered in the service provider form and (b) if the service provider is not listed, I want to provide a link/button to the user to the service provider form.

    For (a), for example, if I could select a service provider (name field) from a list from the service provider form, could I also link it so the address, phone number, etc. are also displayed?

     

    Thank you,

    Joe Venturella

    It is possible, you can pass data entered in one form to another. You can do that by passing or prepopulating fields using the URL parameters.

    The idea is to create 2 forms. The thank you page of the 1st form should be the 2nd form with custom URL. The URL should be the constructed URL parameter from the fields of the 1st form to the 2nd.

    Jan -

    I am trying to prepopulate a JotForm via URL Parameters from InfusionSoft.  I have the InfusionSoft field parameters, but the data is not flowing through.  Here is the Jotform URL:

    http://form.jotform.us/form/51317414549152?firstName=inf_field_FirstName&lastName=inf_field_LastName&rtoUser51=inf_field_Email&rtoMember=inf_field_Phone1

    What am I doing wrong?
