How can I have one form automatically pre-populate a second form?

    For example, I have Form A, which gathers client contact information (Name, Phone, Address, Email), and also captures selections from checkboxes for specific products.

    When the client fills out this form, I would like them to be sent an email that guides them to a second Form B that has been pre-populated with their contact information as well as their choices from the checkboxes.

    I could then set a rule on Form B to automatically show additional information based on the clients choices from Form A. 

    Thank you,

    Dan

    It should be noted that conditions will not be triggered by prepopulation. Only manually interacting with the fields will do that.

    Well.. I guess that answers that question.

    Does anybody know of a form builder that would allow this very helpful feature?

     

    Thanks

    I don't know if it will be of any help in your case but after searching the forum a bit, I discovered that there's an exception to the rule: According to my colleague NeilVicente in this threadSkip to page conditions can be triggered by pre-population. I'll need to run some tests of my own but I have no reason to doubt Neil! :)
