    It looks like the field name of the Surgery field in the first form is changed. Please try changing the field name to dateSurgery127 in the URL as shown below:{institution}&attendingName={attendingName}&goals={goals}&surgicalCase={surgicalCase}&residentName={residentName}&r_email={r_email}&a_email={a_email}&pgy={pgy}&dateSurgery[day]={dateSurgery127:day}&dateSurgery[month]={dateSurgery127:month}&dateSurgery[year]={dateSurgery127:year}

    Let us know if the issue still persists. We will be happy to assist you further.

    I cloned your form and did some tests. It looks like the url provided by my colleague works for the clone. As seen in the screenshot below, the attending name and surgery date are populated successfully.

    I checked your form and it appears that the URL in the condition is still the old one. The url does not have the date and the attending name which may be why the fields are not being populated to the next form.

    Please edit that form again and add the URL to the URL field of the condition. For your convenience, here's the URL provided by my colleague Kiran.{institution}&attendingName={attendingName}&goals={goals}&surgicalCase={surgicalCase}&residentName={residentName}&r_email={r_email}&a_email={a_email}&pgy={pgy}&dateSurgery[day]={dateSurgery127:day}&dateSurgery[month]={dateSurgery127:month}&dateSurgery[year]={dateSurgery127:year}


    If the issue still persists, please let us know.
    Thank you.
