    I've followed all your great tutorials on how to pass fields from one form to another. It's working for a test form I made (Form 1A) but not for one I need it to work for (Form 1B). Form 1A passed the email and name perfectly for Form 2 but nothing passed from Form 1B.

     

    FORM 1A (working):
    https://form.jotform.com/62437535188160

    FORM 1B (Not working):
    https://form.jotform.com/63077539119159

    FORM 2 (the Thank you URL):
    https://form.jotform.com/63063550543148

    I'm sure the url string is set up correctly in the form that's not working so I'm puzzled as to why it's not working. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    In your Form 1B, the name and email tags are incorrect. 

    You have these:

    So you should use these in your thank you URL.

    Example:

    I have fixed this for your convenience.

    I also use the first and last name tag so they are separated when they are populated to the second form.

    name[first]={name10:first}

    name[last]={name10:last}

    The final URL looks like this

    https://www.jotform.com/63063550543148?name[first]={name10:first}&name[last]={name10:last}&email={email9}

    Cheers!

    Ah, duh! I had it reversed in the URL! Thank you much for fixing and fixing the name fields.

    Actually there is another question regarding this. The email address is showing up fine in the body of the Form 2 Admin Notification but how do I make it so it becomes the reply email address for the Form 2 Admin Notification? Right now the reply email is our own. Not a huge deal but it'd be nice to have the user's email as the reply email, if it's possible. Thanks!
