    You can add this code in the redirect URL to populate the Full Name field: ?fullName[first]={fullName#first_35}&fullName[last]={fullName#last_35}

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    I would suggest you to first get the URL to prepopulate data to your second form, you can get the URL by using this app: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/.

    Then, once you get the URL, just replace the data with the fields names from your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names.

    Do let us know if it helps.

    I know how to populate fields. 7 of the 10 fields are populating. Again, the only ones not populating are the name, email and "what is the event" field to the second form... Heres the URL:

    https://form.jotform.com/60193997255164?{whatIs18}=whatIs18&howMany={howMany}&whatIs={whatIs}&howMany19={howMany19}& whenDo={whenDo}&pickUp={pickUp}&dropOff={dropOff}&date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}&pickupTime[hourSelect]={pickupTime:hourSelect}&pickupTime[minuteSelect]={pickupTime:minuteSelect}&pickupTime[ampm]={pickupTime:ampm}&fullName[first]={fullName#first_35}&fullName[last]={fullName#last_35}&whereShould36={whereShould}

    I just cloned your forms and tested the URL, I was unable to prepopulate the full name field, however, other fields are being prepopulated now, use this URL instead of the current that you are using:

    https://form.jotform.com/60193997255164?whatIs18={whatIs18}&howMany={howMany}&whatIs={whatIs}&howMany19={howMany19}& whenDo={whenDo}&pickUp={pickUp}&dropOff={dropOff}&date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}&pickupTime[hourSelect]={pickupTime:hourSelect}&pickupTime[minuteSelect]={pickupTime:minuteSelect}&pickupTime[ampm]={pickupTime:ampm}&fullName36[first]={fullName[first]}&fullName36[last]={fullName[last]}&whereShould={whereShould36}

    I will ask to my colleague in order to get his method to preopulate the full name, we will reply you here soon.

    I tested the previous code I gave you in a new cloned form and oddly, it did not work. This new code should now pre-populate the Full Name field properly. 

    https://form.jotform.com/60193997255164?whatIs18={whatIs18}&howMany={howMany}&whatIs={whatIs}&howMany19={howMany19}& whenDo={whenDo}&pickUp={pickUp}&dropOff={dropOff}&date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}&pickupTime[hourSelect]={pickupTime:hourSelect}&pickupTime[minuteSelect]={pickupTime:minuteSelect}&pickupTime[ampm]={pickupTime:ampm}&fullName[first]={fullName:first}&fullName[last]={fullName:last}&whereShould={whereShould36}

    Apologies for the inconvenience. This URL should now pre-populate the second form properly.

    I checked your form and seems to be working, I tested it and I can see that it's prepopulating the name:

    The link provided by my colleague is the correct, if it does not work yet, just replace the current URL with this one:

    https://form.jotform.com/60193997255164?whatIs18={whatIs18}&howMany={howMany}&whatIs={whatIs}&howMany19={howMany19}& whenDo={whenDo}&pickUp={pickUp}&dropOff={dropOff}&date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}&pickupTime[hourSelect]={pickupTime:hourSelect}&pickupTime[minuteSelect]={pickupTime:minuteSelect}&pickupTime[ampm]={pickupTime:ampm}&fullName36[first]={fullName:first}&fullName36[last]={fullName:last}&whereShould={whereShould36} 

    It should work.
