This is a bit complex but I came across a nice to have feature with some forms I'm working on.
Here is the set up
PAGE 1 (FOR MY FRIENDS TO FILL OUT)
Page 1 is geared towards one group of individuals (almost like a refer a friend program) This page is accessed by people I know and give a link to directly. On this particular page. I have a form with the following fields.
NAME FIELD (first last)
3 consecutive NAME FIELDS which are inputs for the user to input first and last names of friends
1 Paragraph box for the user to input some more descriptions about their friends
PAGE 2 ( CONTACT FORM FOR POTENTIAL CLIENTS)
Page 2 is geared more towards a "hey I want to contact you about having some work done for my site... 'like a contact form' "
single line text WHO REFERRED YOU?
Drop down of service category
Now that you can understand the fields here is something I'd like to be able to do
I want to have form 2 gather information from form1 mainly the NAME field from form1 I want to populate a drop down on form2
Name field from form one should generated a list of NAMES in a drop down on form2 but not session dependent.
Use case I have 15 friends fill out form 1 over the course of a day, a week later I have 5 people I don't know (potential clients) fill out form two and I want them to be able to choose from a drop down who referred them instead of making the user have to type that name into a text box. I want to make this field required as well as not have to second guess on the spelling of the persons name who referred them.
I know we can make forms talk to one another but only on a session basis but I'd want to do some sort of interesting interaction based upon dynamically populating forms on the fly.
I know this is probably something that wont happen right now but would very much like this feature
