    Is it possible to use conditional logic to fill configurable list from another configurable list?

    Asked by leeanndumas on September 15, 2016 at 09:58 AM

    I am using multiple configurable lists for a counting and claiming form. 

    I would like for the user to be able to enter participant information on the attendance list and have that same information be automatically entered on other configurable lists on the form. 

    In the same vein, I am trying to pass data from one matrix to the totals matrix at the bottom of the form, but it is not working.

    Unfortunately, none of those are possible. All framed widgets like the configurable list widget can't be auto-filled through condition or URL parameter due to its nature. These widgets are loaded inside an iframe container, it is considered to be a separate HTML document. So the data from within one iframe can't be passed to the fields inside another iframe element. The frame serves as the barrier between them and I think it's impossible to connect its data because that's just how iframe works by its nature.
