    I have set up one form to populate fields in second form - It ALL works except 2 fields

    Asked by citydogcountrydogtraining on October 15, 2016 at 03:46 PM

    Clients fill out a private training contract and when they submit it I have it set to open our Questtionaire form with some fields already filled out from their answers on private training contract.    It works almost perfectly except for 2 fields.

    There are places for them to fill out information on 3 dogs separately.

    Dog One - Dog's Birthdate and Dog's Adoption date will not copy over to new form

    Dog Two and Dog Three - The birthdates and adoption dates copy over perfectly.

     

    Formatting for dates:

    On the private train form that they fill out first I have these date set up as dates but in "lite form" so that it all fits in one data field

    On the Questionnaire form the fields that the dates are to copy into are simple text fields.   I read on the forum that this is the best way to get dates to copy over.

    The first dog's dates are set up exacly like dog's 2 and 3 but it won't work.

    Here is the link I created.   the yellow part is what is not working and the two green sections work great.   For the life of me I can't figure this out.

    I have cloned your form and tested it on my end, I can see the info in the URL is being properly passed.

    I also submitted your form directly and when I was redirected to the second form I got the same result, I can see the same data is being passed fully as on my cloned forms, here is a screenshot of it: 

    Could you please try again? 

    If the problem still persists on your end, please check the fields names you're passing in your URL, this guide will help you to get a form field's name: How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names

    Please do let us know how it goes.
