    Is there a way to allow the user to fill out a form, then press a button to fill out another form with the previous information already input?

    Asked by zhaetur on April 03, 2016 at 09:34 PM

    Is it possible to have the user fill out a form and then fill out a second one with the previous information already added?

    My intention is to speed up the process of having users submit 30+ similar forms. It would be tremendously helpful to allow the user to not type their name/company/whatever 30 times.

    another form fill then information

    Yes, this is possible to do, you will need to prepopulate the fields on the second form, this app will help you to get the URL with the parameters from the form where you want to send the data previously entered on the first form: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/

    You will need to know the names of the fields in the first form in order to replace the static data provided by the add shared above, this guide will help you to get those names: http://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names

    You may include the URL with the parameters on an email or the thank you page, you may also redirect your users to the URL of the next form with the data prefilled. 

    This guide will help you to include or redirect the user on the thank you page, it means, once the form is submitted: http://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    Hope this helps.

    Is there a way for the user to do all of this or would we have to prepare it for the user?
