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).
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.
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
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?
