    How to prepopulate form with other form values

    Asked by JohnFraserScott on May 17, 2015 at 06:20 AM

    Hello,

    I am wondering if it's possible to have one form ask a bunch of questions and then use some of the answers to pre-populate another form?

    Yes it is possible to pre-populate one form with another. Inside of this article you can find out how to do it:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters 

    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.

    Also in this article you can find out how to find field ID and names.

    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.jotformpro.com/form/51362751234955? 

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

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51362738410956?email1={yourEmail16}

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
