    How to pass data from one form to another with the second form popup in a new window

    Asked by exsfvid on June 03, 2016 at 09:55 AM

    JotForm equipment,

    I wonder if you can do something like the following two forms JotForm, ie a form containing certain information and through a pop up opens another form and that certain information is transferred from one form to another.


    Here is an example of what I require to do:


    Stay tuned thank you very much.

    You can pass value from one form to another with JotForm(Not through a popup of course) by populating the second form via URL parameters once the first form is submitted.




    If you need to have the form pre-filled with values when loaded, you can use PrePopulate Fields app for that.

    Here's the URL that should add in the first form:


    Add it in the thank you URL or in the email so you can click to proceed to the second form.

    Here's the custom Thank you URL guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page.


    cusro2 is the field name of the Curso2: field in the second form.

    curso1 is the field name of the Curso1: field in the first form. Enclose with curly bracket for prepopulation. 

    The URL is self explanatory, but let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

    JotForm equipment,

    This to transfer from one form to another works with dropdown fields delista ?. That is, a drop-down field belonging to Form 1 to another drop-down field corresponding to Form 2.


    the link are:

    1) https://form.jotformz.com/Tdcapacitacion/cotizacion

    2) https://www.jotform.com/Tdcapacitacion/gestion


    this is the string program in the notification, this correct?

    Please note that the parameter in the URL to prepopulate can only be the field name. I see that you have used the field label and so it is not working.

    https://www.jotform.com/Tdcapacitacion/gestion?Perfil de los participantes={perfilDe8}

    Please use the following URL replacing the field label to a field name.


    For more information on knowing about field names/IDs, please refer to the guide below:


    Hope this information helps!
