    Can I have information transfer from one form to another?

    Asked by NancyWCEI on July 26, 2015 at 09:03 AM

    In our application process there are two forms with similar information. 

     

    I would like to have name and address automatically transfer from this form: http://form.jotform.us/form/51805036938156

    To this form when the submit button is selected:  http://form.jotform.us/form/51946811215151

     

    Is this possible?

     

    one form information another name selected two forms

    If you want to automatically pass the data from the first form to the second form after submission, you can do so by following the steps from this thread:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/234321

     

    If you want to move the data from the first form to the second form, you can do it using our import app:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/308-Import-App-Easily-import-your-data-in-Excel-or-CSV-to-JotForm

    But before using the app, make sure that you have already exported the submission from the first form into a CSV file (http://www.jotform.com/help/103-How-to-create-a-CSV-Report ).

    Thanks

    I followed the instructions and only got to the point where I created my URL parameters:
    http://form.jotform.us/form/52076288469165?lastName={lastName128}&firstName163={firstName129}&middle={middle}&emailrequired95={emailrequired95}
    I am not exactly sure what to do with it now.

    This is the correct URL:

    http://form.jotform.us/form/51946811215151?name308={lastName163}&firstName={firstName129}&middle={middle}&emailAddress={emailrequired95}

    First form: http://form.jotform.us/form/52076288469165 

    Last Name field name: name308

    First Name field name: firstName

    Middle field name: middle

    Email field name: emailAddress

     

    Second form: http://form.jotform.us/form/51946811215151

    Last Name field name: {lastName163}

    First Name field name: {firstName129}

    Middle field name: {middle}

    Email field name: {emailrequired95}

     

    Again, add the above prepopulated URL as the Thank You URL of the first form.

    Thanks
