    Asked by afckredieten on November 05, 2015 at 06:00 AM

    Hello,

    I have a made with the help of Jotforms support, a car loan calculation tool. Now i'm making a loan application form, because this form will be used for other types of loans, i making this in a seperate form. But i need the calculated monthly payements, total cost of the car, and some other data from the calculation tool in the apllication form. How can i do this. Thanks for you're help.  

    Another possibility is that i merge the two forms, so that after the calculation visitors can make there application following, in the same form.

     

    Thanks in advance for you're assistance

    You can preopulate the second from using data from the first through URL parameters

    http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    You will then pass the data to the respective fields in the second form.


    Another option is to have all the functionality in one form then use form conditions to switch between the car loans and the other type of loans by hiding/showing the related fields.

    If you could explain your workflow we will be able to clarify on the approach to use.
