    Can I autopopulate fields from one form to another?

    Asked by suesol on August 10, 2016 at 12:38 PM

    I am in the process of setting up a form that can be saved by the user so they can return to it later. I set up two forms. One form for contact information and one form with my questions. I set it up so after filling out the contact info they get a link to the questions form with a session ID associated with it (their email). Then I set it up so they could access that form at any time if they need to take a break and come back to it. All of that works.

    However, I need their contact information on the questions form as well so I know who to follow-up with. Is there a way to pull that contact information from the first form, into the second form? So that when they submit, it's all there for me to see in one spot. Or, will they need to re-enter that data into the second form in order for me to see it?

    Please let me know if you can help.

     

    This is the first form with contact information: https://form.jotform.com/62214999485167

    This is the form we'd like to pull in the contact information data (from the first form): https://form.jotform.com/62215607128148

    It is indeed possible to pass form field data from one form to another but only when the first form is submitted.  This can be done via URL parameters and the thank you page.  Here is our guide on how to do so:

    There would need to be fields in the second form to receive the data.
