    Is it possible to duplicate responses to billing/shipping addresses?

    Asked by zaccopp on May 01, 2012 at 10:08 AM

    I would like to give the option to copy a response in a later field.  For example, I'd like to have a checkbox that says "shipping address is same as billing address." If checked the fields for the shipping address are auto-completed with the same information as found in the billing address.  If this functionality does not exist, it would be a GREAT addition to the address tool found in the quick tools.

    I've looked at that link but i don't think it answers the question.

    I'd be interested to know if this is possible also. 

    I think what zaccopp is asking is whether it's possible to populate one field with the input of another.  In this case it would be to duplicate the result entered into an address field for delivery so that the user doesn't have to repeat it again if the billing address is the same.  They could just check a box that populates the delivery address fields with the same data as the billing address inputs.

    I realize that with logic you can show/hide an additional address field/section and that'll pretty much do the same thing but as far as populating multiple fields with the same input goes, it will be nice to be able to do that.  Is that possible?


    Thank you.

    Yep thats the effect.  Thank you!

    I think I'll stick with the show field option in this case.  If I really need it to copy content from one field to another then it will have to be worth the trouble.  That looks a little time consuming but its definitely great to have the option.

     

    Cheers,
