    Prepopulate Time From ThankYou Of Another Form

    Asked by Jonneal3 on January 18, 2016 at 05:20 PM

    Hey Guys. I have a jotform in which someone fills out all of the data and when they click, my thank you is another jotform with the previous data already filled out (A two step opt, with data from the first step already populated). For some reason, I cannot prepopulate the time field (because its in 3 sections). I was able to get the date from somewhere else on the forum. Any ideas guys on why the time field wont populate?

    Any help is appreciated!!!

    Heres the Thank You Page URL:

    Hi,

     

    The form you have linked doesn't seem to have a pre-populate link on the Thank You page. Can you please provide the related links to your forms so we can investigate further?

    As for the time field, the red highlighted data from the link below is where the data should be inserted so that it will pre-populate the time field correctly.

    ?pickupTime[hourSelect]={fieldNameofHour}&pickupTime[minuteSelect]={fieldNameofMinute}&pickupTime[ampm]={fieldNameofAm/PM}

    Example:

    ?pickupTime[hourSelect]=5&pickupTime[minuteSelect]=20&pickupTime[ampm]=AM

     

     

    Do inform us if you need further assistance
    Regards.
