    Does JotForm has feature similar to pipe feature of FormSite?

    Asked by David on September 09, 2016 at 01:08 PM

    Does this Pipe feature work yet on JotForm?  FormSite it works on subsequent pages (e.g. only after you hit NEXT or SUBMIT).  It is a very helpful feature...


    For example, if on PAGE 1 user writes their name is "Sarah", then on PAGE 2 you can personalize some of the questions (e.g. "Sarah, what is your favorite color?")

    This is possible to achieve. You can add value of your name field to label of your other questions.

    You will need to get value - Unique Name field and add value of that field in label of your other question. Inside of this guide you can find how to find field IDs and Unique names:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names 

    I have created demo form. In my demo form value of my field "What is your name?" is {whatIs}. I have added value of that field to the label of my second field. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62525542170955 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I am having trouble making this work on my “Reimbursement Request Form”. Please find the section towards the end where I have “Write {yourCampName} on the top of the receipt” listed but text from that field is not showing up.

    I have inspected your form and I saw that you are trying to pass value to check box option. Unfortunately that is not possible to achieve. It is not possible to pass values as options of fields. 

    You can only add values of one field as label of another field. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62562247384965 

    You will see that value of name field will only be passed to text field and label of other field. It will not be passed to radio button option.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
