pre filling a form with the data of the previous form?

    I have a submission form where parents can subscribe their child in a school.
    See here: http://tinyurl.com/cn9v8km
    When the first child is subscribed, the form must ask it they want to enter a 2nd child.
    If yes, the new form (with a different layout) must be prepopulated with the data from the first child (address, phone, email etc).
    Is there a way to achieve this?

    If you're looking to copy the input from one field to another on the SAME form and page then look here.

    Adding the code below to your functions.php will get the job done.

    <?php
    
    add_action("gform_pre_submission", "pre_submission_handler");
    function pre_submission_handler($form){
        $_POST["input_14"] = "new value for field 14";
    }
    ?>
