Is it possible to automatically update one field in multiple forms?Asked by infosd on April 20, 2016 at 08:32 AM
I have some forms that uses the same field with the same options, I need to update manually one by one everytime we have an update. Is it possible create one field and use them in multiple forms?
Instead I create a new field, is it possible create a link to field "City" on Form1? Since I update options in Form1 it will be automatic update of Form2.
Tool JotForm Field Manager App, not solve my problem
Form exemples with field name: "FILIAL", but I have more than 30 forms with this same field and options.
Thanks! It works. Just more one question, How can I put this information on e-mail alert? I tried but it not work.
It is not actually possible to pass the values from the embedded form to the main one. So the information will not get in the email alert unless you the user perform a double submission - submit the embedded form (which will keep the user on the main form) Then submit the whole form.
See an example here: https://form.jotform.com/61104715310945
Note that those information would be in two different submissions ( two email alert ).
