How to Pass Field Value to Another Field?

May 27, 2022

Populate fields like text box, email, textarea, or even an address fieldset using the Update/Calculate Field condition.

We’ll be using this form as an example where we need to pass the Personal Email field’s value to the Business Email field.


Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Settings tab in the Form Builder.
  2. Click Conditions on the left.
  3. Select the Update/Calculate Field option.
  1. Set the trigger and action next. For our sample form, the condition would look like the following:

To break that down:

  • We’ve set the trigger or IF statement to check if the Personal Email field “Is Filled”.
  • The action or DO statement will insert the Personal Email field’s value into the Business Email field if the condition is met.
  1. Click Save to complete the setup.
