Moving Form Data between Forms within a Process
Putting Process Form Data to Work
Using the “moveformdata” step, mappings can be configured to move data between two Form Instances. Open the “TestFormDef” Workflow Definition from our last blog and add second “instantiateForm” step to the process. Connect the new step to the last step on the process.
These mappings will simply move data from source form to target form. The formID1 values for the first and last name fields will be copied to the first and last name fields of formID2. Save the “moveformdata” step configuration and the Workflow Definition and re-execute the Workflow Instance. When the form task is routed, enter the following values into the form fields:
As you can see, field data from the first form was copied to the second form by the process.
