Copy field content between multipage form?Asked by andrewg1234 on May 02, 2012 at 08:37 AM
I am looking at making a registratioin form for a kids club.
The form has about 8 fields that a parent needs to fill in to register their child, including First name, Surname , address, contact number etc.
Form example at the listed URL (Username "Soncastle", Password:"Faire").
My Idea is to have a multi page form with exactly the same fields, but a different title (like Child #1, Child #2 ond so on)
The second and subsequent registation pages would not be revealed until the parent hit the "Next" page break button (Changed to "Register another Child")
So, my question is: If a parent also wants to register other children from the same family, is there a way that field content from the form on page one could be repeated on page 2 (and 3 and 4 if necessary)
If this were possible, the parent would only have to add the next child's First name and age....the Address/phone number/etc fields would already be populated?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for contacting us.

Thanks for your quick response! The tutorial looks good, I'll give it a try.
Do you know if it is possible to have a "Submit" button on each page of a form? I imagine that you can only submit the entire contents (all the pages) of the form. Planning to import the .CSV file staight into our Filemaker database.
If it is a multiple form, Yes, you can put submit button on each of them.
But if it is only a single form with page breaks, No.
The important aspect of the submit button is on the form action, meaning it work within the <form> </form> only. Each form will only have <form> on each.
Hope this help. Please inform us should you require further assistance.
Thanks again Jonathan,
Will the example in the tutorial you have linked to work with a multiple form?
Please be advised that it's now possible to copy multiple fields. See Item #2 in our latest JotForm Weekly Updates thread (June 11 to 17, 2013) for details.
