    The solution my colleagues provided was for forwarding a selected answer from one field into the label of another field.

    Please see the following demo form:

    https://form.jotformpro.com/form/63262517316958

    As mentioned in the original support thread, you need to use the exact name of the first field, written inside { and } curly brackets, and enter it as such in the label of your second field.

    The name of the field in my demo above is {inTerms}, so I have use this as the label of the second field: How many times did you want to {inTerms}

    You can clone the above form into your own account for further testing:

    And the following guide shows how you can obtain a field name or field ID:
