Easy Passthrough for Gravity Forms lets you populate a form’s fields with user entry data from another form. This is an easy way to break up a large amount of fields over multiple forms, increasing user engagement and preventing form abandonment.
Passthrough Form Data in 30 Seconds
To enable Easy Passthrough, add a new Easy Passthrough configuration to the form you want populated, select which form you want to populate from and map the fields between the two forms. You can also use conditional logic to only passthrough certain entry data.
As users visit your site, their form entries are stored in a secure cookie throughout their browsing session. When they load a form, Easy Passthrough checks for available configurations and passes-through available entry data.
No More Ugly URLs!
Instead of sending passthrough data with a URL, Easy Passthrough transfers the data in the background. Now you can implement your form passthroughs on any page without having to worry about 200+ character long URLs that contain every data point in your form.
Secure Data Transfer
When populating Gravity Forms fields using dynamic population through a query string, it is easy for the user to manipulate the data being passed to the second form. All they have to do is modify the URL and the values are changed on the form. This is not a major concern for simple passthroughs like names and emails but is an issue for forms passing through more sensitive data.
Easy Passthrough makes data transfer between forms more secure. On every form submission, the generated entry ID is stored in a server-side cookie and a reference to this cookie is sent to the user. This cookie reference is then stored in their browser. This allows the entries filled out during a browsing session to be stored for easy reference, but in a way that doesn’t allow the user to tamper with the data.
