    2. I want to create a form that populate another form

    SO a user (user1)  registers an activity ( a code is created for that activity)

    The user gives that code to a person (user2) who will rate their experience resulting from the activity/service user1 provides

    User2 signs in with the code and leaves their evaluation of User1.  The results populate a spreadsheet. automatically.

    If I understood you correctly you want to pre-populate one form with data form other form. 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 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.

    I have created demo form, 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.
