    How to get the field name in the form?

    Asked by kingfisherweddings on January 30, 2016 at 05:46 AM

    Can you please help me identify which part of this code I need to copy in order to paste it into a second form and how to do it. The text doesn't seem to want to be copied - only th efull line?

    Just find the field name in the form builder instead of viewing the form source. Here's how: http://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names.

    You can also use our prepopulate app to generate the data:

    obviously that is not the correct answer. If it was a simple as just copying the field name i wouldn't have contacted support now would I?

    I'm sorry, but I thought that you only need to get the field name so I gave you the guide. The guide tells you how to easily get the field name in the form builder.

    We have this full guide on how you can pass one form data to another form:

    If you need help with this, just please let us know your first form and then the second form and tell us what field should be forwarded from the first form to the second.
