Let's say I have a form with two sections: "About You" and "About your Spouse". In each section, there is a PhoneNumber field. I would like for the default value of the "About your Spouse" PhoneNumber fields to be the value from the "About You" PhoneNumber field. However, when I type an "=" in the Default Value box of the "About Your Spouse" PhoneNumber field, I can't figure out how to reference the other field from a different section of the form.
If the field is in the same section, there is no problem.
I tried typing in
=AboutYou.PhoneNumber but that didn't work.
I've also tried
=Entry.AboutYou.PhoneNumber. I didn't expect those to work based on the structure of the JSON string that is generated when the form is submitted, but a desperate person will try many things. ;-)
There are other areas within Cognito forms where I need to reference a field from a prior section and cannot figure it out. Hopefully the same answer that pertains to this question pertains there as well.
