How to Pass Field Value to Another Field?Last Update: February 22, 2017
If you're familiar with this workaround, we'll here's a very simple way to achieve this without writing any single line of code.
From now on, you can now populate fields like Text Box, Email, Text Area or even an Address field using the newly released feature called "Update/Calculate Field" condition.
Assuming you have already created a form with two fields e.g. Personal Email & Business Email. Now, you want to copy personal email field value and populate it to business email field whenever the personal email field is filled. Here's how:
1. Click "Conditions" in the form builder.
2. In the "Conditions" wizard, select "Update/Calculate Value".
3. On the next window, do the following.
a. Select a trigger point in the IF dropdown. This is usually the source field.
b. Select state "Is Filled"
c. Select "Copy a Field's value" in the DO dropdown. Optional: If you want to copy multiple fields, select "Copy Multiple Field values"
d. Select the FROM field (field where the value will be taken or copied)
e. Select the TO field (field where the value will be passed)
4. Click Save and preview your form!
