Scripting Form Creation

    Asked on February 17, 2012 at 03:16 PM

    I am going to guess after all the recent trouble, this is not a possibility, but I figured I would anyways in case I am overlooking something. 

    We are using a Jotform for sign up.  This includes collecting certain parameters associated to that customer.  We need these parameters to be placed into another jotform tailored specifically for this customer.  Right now, this involves receiving the signup information and having someone manually duplicate the form from a template and then change the values and sending the link to the customer.  While it doesn't take that long, we would like to automate to satisify our customers need for instant gratification.  Is this possible and I have just overlooked the ability in which to do so?  We really just need to duplicate and then change a few of the checkbox and drop down list values.  

    any help would be appreciated.

    Does this sample form exemplify the process you want to achieve? This workaround involves prepopulating the second form with URL parameters taken from the first form.

    If this is exactly what you need, inform us right away so we can lay out instructions for you. We'll be looking forward to your prompt response. Thank you!

    Hi Neil,

    Your answer is exactly what we are looking for.

    How do we have to proceed to generate that prepopulated link in the 'Thank you' page for the fields in the 2nd form straigth after the user submits the 1st form ?

    I'll be working on an extensive guide for this workaround. I'll post the link here when it is finished.

    Thank you for your patience.
