    How to transfer data from one form to another form

    Asked by leslieradon on April 29, 2016 at 09:58 PM
    You sent me an explanation for transfering data from one form to another. BUT I can't understand what the colored words mean. Can you a/explain or b/give me a guide?
     
    Thanks, Leslie    (agents@kosenrooms.space)
     
    Here's the final prepopulated form 2 URL that I have:
     
    https://form.jotform.com/53542179889977?fullName1[first]={fullName:first}&fullName1[last]={fullName:last}&email2={email}&textBox8={textBox}&textArea7={textArea}&dropDown4={dropDown}&radioButton5={radioButton}&checkBox6={checkBox:0},{checkBox:1},{checkBox:2}
     
    This is how Form 2 URL is structured:
    Blue highlight: Form 2's direct link
    Red highlight:
    "?" - We will start the prepopulation by adding first this symbol
    "=" - To assign a value on a form field
    "&" - To  add more than one form field to be prepopulated
     
    Yellow highlight: This is the field name from Form 2. You can get the field name by following these guides:
     
     
     
    Green highlight: This is the field name from Form 1 but wrapped in {}.
     
     
    PS the two forms you sent ARE IN FACT identical and not different as you said.

    To better assist you with the solution, please share to us the URL of the 2 forms you wanted to do this.

    1) the source form   and 2) the target form where you wanted the data form 1st form be transferred to.

    We will wait for your response.
