    I can't prepopulate my form

    Asked by Elimmee on March 09, 2016 at 04:23 PM


    Thanks so much for your service...it's wonderful as we try to revamp our volunteer application process.

    I've tried many times with different formulations to prepoplutate Form 2 with Form 1 data.  Specifically the Full name from Form 1 to populate the Name of Applicant in Form 2


    Form 1 https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60195878702262 

    Form 2 https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60665183399265 


    But it just won't populate.  I did it before with another form 2 and it worked.  But it was just full name not full name split up into first and last name.  

    I also want to pre-populate Form 2 with the' Applying to be" drop box selection from Form 1

    Thanks for your faithful help!
