    How to email pre-population form link with email alert

    Asked by labman3 on May 28, 2015 at 05:22 PM

    I don't want the populated form to pop-up when the visitor completes it. Form2 is a medical prescription and needs to be emailed to the physician. When the visitor completes the form and submits it, the visitor should only see a simple thank you message and the second forms goes directly to the physician.

    Form1: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=51386206687160

    Form2: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=51386186795167

    There is no way to silently submit the second form without custom programming.

    However, you can add the form2 pre-population link into email template and automatically email it to the physician each time the form is being submitted.

    Setting Up Email Notifications

    So that the email link can be used to open pre-populated second form.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks. I'll try that to see how it works. Will it also stop the populated form from popping up when the visitor presses submit?

    So, I haven't been able to make it work. I used the guides without much luck. goal is for the visitor to get a simple thank you message and for the physician to get the actual form.


    Thank you,

    Hi labman3, 

    Thanks for contacting us.


    If I understand your issue correctly, I think you need to add the second's form pre-populated link in your Notifier email that is sent to your physicians. To do this, just follow instructions below.

    Add tag to email:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.us/form/51386186795167?firstName={firstName}&amp;lastName={lastName}&amp;address={address}&amp;email={email7}&amp;address6={address6}&amp;state={state}&amp;zipCode={zipCode}&amp;phone={phone}"> Prescribe</a>


    Email notification email will look like this.


    If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us again.
