    Can I prepopulate a second jotform with selected info from the drop down box of the first form submitted?

    Asked by Elimmee on March 09, 2016 at 12:25 PM


    I have two forms:  Application and Reference.  

    The Application form has a selection from drop down:  Applying to be (drop down) volunteer, intern, summer staff, staff member

    Whatever they select there, after they submit, I want to populate the second form with in a textbox so the reference person knows whether they are applying to be a volunteer or intern etc.
