Data of one form to another form

  1. Hello guys!

    I develop a job board by using gravity forms: the users fill out a form (including e-mail address) to publish their job postings.

    Now I'm interested in integrating another form: If the visitor likes to contact the job posting owner, he should use a contactform on job posting site for a fast way to contact.

    I think it won't be a problem to create and integrate the contact form in the job posting site.

    But I've to pass the data of the email address field to the contact form, because the job posting owner should get the mail by the visitor.

    And I'm not sure if there is any way to realize this.

    Is there anybody who can help me?

  3. We are wrapping up development on Gravity Forms v1.3 which will have some features that will make accomplishing this easier. We expect to release v1.3 next week.

    It will introduce advanced field types for custom fields. So you can create a "Reply To" email field that is stored as a custom field with the post that is created by the form that creates the job post.

    Then, on the form that is used to reply to the job listing you can add an email field that is set to admin only. You can then dynamically populate this admin only email field with the posts custom field that contains the job listers email address.

    Then you setup the User Notification to go to this email address. This will then send the email to the person who listed the job.

    This will be easier to accomplish with 1.3 when we introduce the capability to make an email field populate a post custom field. Until then it will be more involved. Once 1.3 is released, contact us via the Contact Us form and i'll be happy to walk you through how to set it up.

  4. I Carl, I have the exact same issue as Michael. Can you give more info on how to achieve this? I am sure anyone who bought the tapp job theme from Press75 would be interested in such a tutorial since we need a way to contact the original author.

    Thx.

  5. Hey Alain, there is actually a post on the forum that outlines how to sent the notification email to the author of the post. This can easily be customized to instead send it to an email address stored in a custom field.

    You can find details here:

  6. Thanks. Working on this right away! BTW, I just want to say that at first I found the cost of the plugin a bit high but seeing its features and the support level, it was totally worth it.

  7. Thanks Alain! We appreciate the kind words. If you wouldn't mind posting a testimonial in the Testimonials forum we'd appreciate it.

    If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. We will be working towards putting more support tutorials and screencasts on the site in the near future. We will be expanding the available resources so people can more easily put to use some of the more advanced capabilities of the plugin.

  8. Yah, for me screencast are the way to go because it is easier to see the end result and the how to while text is always subject to confusion.

    So back to my issue. I tried the link you gave me and it almost worked. I just dont understand how to get the content from the body field that the visitor fill in form_2 into the email I am sending. So far, I have only worked with custom field and it worked well but how can I access the content of the body tag?

  9. The Post Body should appear as a Form Field Variable that you can insert using the variable drop down when setting up your notification. It will appear under whatever field label you gave that field (so it won't say Post Body it will say whatever you called the field... Job Description for example).
