    Duplicate current filling form and open in a new window

    Asked by Burkhart on July 21, 2015 at 11:27 AM

    Is there a way we could put a "Duplicate form" on the bottom of the form where they could press it, and it would automatically duplicate what they have on the current form, and open a new window with the same form? Duplicate it, but they could still change an answer and then submit if they wanted to?

    I understand that you want to have the same form filled with the same information currently being filled to a new window. It is possible to pre-populate the values of the form to a different form by placing the link to the form prepoulated with values in Thank you page. However, the values on the current form can be sent to another form only when the current form is submitted. Please refer to the thread below.

    If you want to have the same fields on the same form, you may make use of conditions to duplicate the value to the second field. Please see the below screenshot how the conditions can be set to duplicate the value. Step 3 is optional and need to be used when the field value is text.

    Please refer to the demo form that is setup with conditions and Prepopulated URL in the Thank you page.

    No, this would open a new window with the same exact form (it would submit it twice) and if they wanted to change any information on the new, duplicate form, they could. Not same field. Same form. I think your example is the same field. I would like a button to say "Duplicate Form" and if they pressed it, it would take all of the information they have on the current form, open up a new browser window with the new form filled in with the same exact information.

    Thanks!

    Hi  Burkhart,

     

    Unfortunately, it is not currently possible in JotForm. We can only pre-populate a form based on another form's field data using the link provided by our colleague  Kiran.  You'll need a custom program code to implement this.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

     

    Regards.
