    Value transfer does not work when I go back to the form after once leaving the page.

    Asked by miohonda on August 31, 2016 at 02:13 AM

    Hi

    I am transferring an input value to another field.  The first time I access the form, this works. However when I leave the form before submitting and revisit once again, the values are not transferred anymore. 

    This is the input that I want to be transferred.

    The first time it works fine.

    This is what happens when I revisit.

     

    Please kindly guide me to correct this.

    Thank you.

    Saving the session value to the TEXT field will not work since this field is a read-only field(static)

     

    Actually even if you were able to pass the value the first time, that value in the TEXT field will still not be saved or included in the submissions. So it will not be recorded anywhere.

    You must use instead fields that allows repository of input data i.e Textboxes, TextArea.

    Hope this help. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    I see.

    I wanted to transfer values to make it more personal (like the feature they have at Typeform), but I guess I will have to give it up...

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, as my colleague already explained, TEXT fields don't work in that way.

    If you need additional assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!
