    Asked on December 07, 2015 at 05:42 AM

    Hello guys

    Me again ;-)

    Can you help me please, i've read and try it for myself but with no luck.

    I need the following

    this is my source form (car loan calculator)

    Form 1

    from this i need

    1. Kostprijs van het voertuig {kostprijsVan} / 2. Voorschot {voorschot60} / 3. Te lenen bedrag {teLenen} / 4. Het JKP {hetJkp}

     5. Gekozen looptijd {looptijdVeld} / 6. Maandelijkse aflossing {maandelijkseAflossing} / 7. Op einddatum bedraagt het bedrag {opEinddatum}


    The submissions of these fields need to go with, when the visitor hits "vraag dit krediet aan (blue button)" this leeds to this form

    Form 2

    the submissions from form 1 need to be prepolated. The 1,2,3 ... from above need to be linked with following fields of form 2

    1=Kostprijs vht voertuig {kostprijsVan900} /2= Betaald voorschot {betaaldVoorschot901} /3= Welk bedrag wenst u te ontlenen {welkBedrag} / 4= JKP is {jkpIs} / 5= looptijd {looptijd903} / 6= Maandelijks aflossing {maandelijkseAflossing1032} / 7= Totaalbedrag op vervaldag {totaalbedragOp}

    I begon following you're guide for prepopulations, but i don't succeed in it. Can you help me / do one or two fields so i know how i can proceed, or something like that.

    This will be the last step i need to take for going live with this form, and would be gratfull if you guys would help me with it.

    Hi Kim,

    Please, follow the instructions to transfer your data from 1st form to 2nd form.


    To do that,

    1) You need to find the "Name" of the specific field. Select the desired field and click to gear shaped icon and then, click to "Show Properties".



    2) Copy the "Name" of that field.


    2) Copy your 2nd Form URL and construct the URL parameter for prepopulating value from the 1st form to the 2nd form; but before that, you need "ID" and "Name" values from 1st and 2nd form.

    For the 1st form,

    - You need to use first step to find their "Name"s.


    For the 2nd form,



    3) Below, the example combines the values from 1st form to 2nd form. Purple marked areas represent the labels from 2nd form (we get those values from the step 2). Orange marked areas represent the labels from 1st form (from the step 1). Also, the yellow marked URL is the 2nd form's URL.



    Also, you can check the document Prepopulating the fields to your JotForm via URL parameters.


    4) Finally, set the 1st form's Thank you page URL as custom URL with the parameters from the step 3. 



    After those, steps 1st form redirect user to 2nd form with the values from the 1st form.


    For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Thanks for this , but it's this what i already tried to do and didnt succeed. I dont find the source code with the element inspector of chrome or how ever its name is.

    Can you for instance make one example  so i can see how i can construct it.

    If possible

    the names of each field of form 1 and form 2 (from the bottom of the show properties) are already copied in my thread here above
