    Trying to automatically pass form data to another form

    Asked by PRxPro on January 11, 2016 at 03:25 PM

    My Form 1 is:

    https://form.jotform.com/60097179952971

    My Form 2 is: https://form.jotform.com/PRxPro/monitoring-report-30

    I am trying to use the Check box field "Monitoring Report" in form 1 to populate "Red Flags" of form 2.

    My code is: 

    https://form.jotform.com/PRxPro/monitoring-report-30?name={name}&redFlags157={monitoringReport:0},{monitoringReport:1},{monitoringReport:2},{monitoringReport:3},{monitoringReport:4},{monitoringReport:5},{monitoringReport:6},{monitoringReport:7},{monitoringReport:8},{monitoringReport:9},{monitoringReport:10},{monitoringReport:11},{monitoringReport:12}

    The Name field works, however, ONLY the first 3 checkboxes are checked in Form 2 when I check ALL the checkboxes in Form 1.

    Please help!

    Thank you.

    I took a look at the link that you have given and it seems to be OK.

    I have cloned your first form and set it to have the following thank you page redirect URL:

    https://form.jotform.com/PRxPro/monitoring-report-30?name={name}&redFlags157={monitoringReport:0},{monitoringReport:1},{monitoringReport:2},{monitoringReport:3},{monitoringReport:4},{monitoringReport:5},{monitoringReport:6},{monitoringReport:7},{monitoringReport:8},{monitoringReport:9},{monitoringReport:10},{monitoringReport:11},{monitoringReport:12}

    Once set, it passed over the details to your form without any issue.

    You can see however that not all fields are included since they were not present on your first form.

    This is the link that I get after being redirected to your second form:

    https://form.jotform.com/PRxPro/monitoring-report-30?name=&redFlags157=SBI,UDS,Alc,N/S%20RXL,N/S%20PT,N/S%20P/C,OARRS,Coun,P/C,XS,Fxn,Other,SEE%20NOTE

    Please do check and let us know if you are still experiencing any issues.

    I forgot to mention, but this is the clone of your form: https://form.jotform.com/60106618009953 with the URL redirection set.

    Feel free to submit it as many times as you want.
