    Passing values from one form to another that has page breaks

    Asked by BorgessHealth on July 17, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    Is there a trick to passing values from one form to a second form that also has page breaks.  I'm trying to have a user submit contact information on form 1.  That form then submits to a URL where there are videos to watch, each embedded to another form.  Each video in that form is separated by a page break so when the user completes one video they select next to go to the next in the series.  After watching the final video, the user should select next and a form displays requesting additional contact information.  THe problem is that I want to pass the contact info already submitted on form 1 to this form so they aren't duplicating that information.

     

    I can get this to work without page breaks but as soon as I add them, I just get blank fields in the form.

    Hi,

    If you are trying to pass values from one form to another, it needs to be from the first form to the second form.  You can't pass the values from form one, to form two, to form three, unless you capture the data from form 1 into fields in form 2.  Then pass the fields from form 2 into fields in form 3.

    Having pagebreaks on your form will not affect the prepopulated value because these "pages" are all automatically loaded once the form is called by your browser. The "pages" are only hidden by a script which is also responsible for displaying them via the Next and Back buttons.
