How to Update one Confiform entry with another Confiform Entry

I am currently building a form that has a smart dropdown linked to another form. What I want to do is update the second form with a notation any time the selection is made in the first form. If the first form is asking users to select from a list of options that are generated from a smart dropdown referencing form 2, I want to mark the option in form 2 as having been used so the next person can't see that option (basically making a notation that can be filtered on so the list shrinks every time someone makes a selection).

Example:

Form 1 has a smart dropdown referencing option in form 2

First person sees options 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 on form 1

They choose option 3

The first form updates option 3 in the second form to reflect that choice

Person 2 would then only see options 1, 2, 4, 5, 6

I know you can update an entry in the same confiform using the IFTTT macro and the code entryId=[entry.id]&(whatever field you want to update in that entry), but I don't know how to tell the IFTTT to update a different form.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi

You can use Update by Filter IFTTT - https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/CONFIFORMS/Configuring+ConfiForms+IFTTT+actions+and+rules#ConfiguringConfiFormsIFTTTactionsandrules-UpdateConfiFormsEntriesbyFilter

The filter would be then something like

id:[entry.smartfield_name_here]

Hi Alex. I created a similar solution as Erin and your answer worked for me too.  However I am curious as to how this works. My understanding is that an id is like "93f7401f-0684-423d-bbc4-9e0630c9b1fe". So how is it that the "id" will match the smartfield_name on the other form?

Smart fields hold the IDs of the records they reference
