    Hi soluto,


    Thanks for contacting us.


    I found your form http://www.jotformeu.com/form/51903279982365 from the page you have given. After checking your requirement, I think you want to copy the name entered from the first page of the form to the second page using {name}. It won't work because that holder will not have a value unless the form is already posted/submitted (i.e. it works on Thank You page when data is already submitted).


    You might consider using conditions. Please see Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic. Using conditions, you can copy input from one field to another (from one textbox to another).


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    You might need to build 2 forms and pass the values via URL parameters in the second form which would be your survey.

    Here is a guide on how to accomplish this:
