Amy Dalrymple asked 1 year ago
Hi, everyone -- I'm trying to create a "gated" form in two pages.   Page one simply requires two fields, name and email address.   On page two, I want to reflect whatever the user put into those fields in read only/confirmation fields.   Is it possible to pass one field's value to another field in the same form?   I did already look at https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/automatically-populate-fields/ but none of these scenarios seem to match what I need. I'm trying to prevent having multiple forms on my site.   Thanks for any ideas!

I've been around a while, but get lost in some of the changes some times. :)

At one point in time I feel like you could just insert the field id into the field you wanted to populate in the same form. What happens if you plug in [312] (your field ID of course) into the field you want to "auto populate"?

Unfortunately that doesn't quite work - I just see [312] (I did update to the ID of the field I wanted) prepopulated in the form field. I also just tried [frm-field-value field_id=312] from the documentation link above and it just seems to pull the most recently submitted value for that field I want to pull from.

How about this:

A text calculation in the field that needs the value with the id in the calculation.

That worked!! Thank you SO MUCH for pointing out this functionality - I've never used it before!
