    What is the easyest way of prepopulating fields to next page?

    Asked by Mimich on January 20, 2016 at 07:42 AM

    Hi I know this has many answers around the forum and I was searching earlier to find an easy answer but all of them seems to me somewhat complicated and I just want to ask what is the easiest and simplest way of prepopulating some fields from one page to next after hit the submit button of a form. I want just a couple of fields to be prepopulated to the next form that would be the first name and last name fields. If you have some video tutorials I think that would be much easier form people to understand it.

    Thank you in advance

    I presume what you meant by "next page" is redirecting user from form 1 to form 2, is that correct? You can prepopulate the URL of form 2 if you want to pass data from form 1. You can find this guide in this link: http://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-automatically-pass-form-data-to-another-form. However, there's no video tutorial of it yet. 

    If you have questions on this, please feel free to reply back to us here in this thread.

    Thank you.
