Get fields data from other forms

  1. 1pp1k10k4m1

    Can I get form data from other forms?

    ie Can UserA fill out FormA and then FormB get certain fields from FormA?

    I am having users submit answers and a panel of judges need to be able to judge the answers from 0-25. However, I need to grab the users answers and put them into another form so the judge can read the question and answer and grade the submission. Any ideas?

    Thank you!

  2. For formB, you can pre-populate the fields using the gform_pre_render filter.

    How does the judge get the link to formB and start grading an entry? That will help determine the best way to populate the values in formB.

    Thanks Chris!

    I think this will get me started.

    I'm basically looking for a way to associate scores
    Ideally the judge would log in from a protected from end, and be redirected to all posts containing the tag for their posts (we have about 2000 posts and 40 judges, but that's another problem in dividing them up). So, judgeA logs in, sees formB (which contains the teacher's name, and the answers to the 4 questions, which are pulled from formA) and rates the questions. Upon submitting the form, the fields would be totaled and the score aggregated and input into another field.

    I hope this makes sense...

  4. Rather than having two forms, you could include admin only fields, one for each answer to be graded, and then the judges could just edit the entry, read the answer, and add their score. Then they could mark the entry as graded or starred or something. You would avoid two forms and trying to associate them.
