We have a scenario where we will be collecting some employee information in Q1 (FormA). In Q4, we will initiate a different form collecting additional information (FormB). Is it possible to pull the information collected from FormA into FormB?
Can you use data collected in a previous form into a different form?
You could use a timer activity in the process to keep it out of their inbox, but personally I don't like making a process sit for that long if I can avoid it. I would go the database route.
It will require a workflow to push the information from the first process into the database.
Process 1 takes the form details then triggers a workflow that takes the form fields and pushes them to the database table. It would need to include some way to link back to this data on the second process. Maybe that's just the username or some other unique identifier.
Process 2 uses that unique identifier (which is why the username is a good choice) to look up the values from the first form to load into the second form.
It's unclear if you are referring to two forms in the same process/instance, which is pretty easy to do this, or if you are referring to two completely different process/instances, in which case you'll need something to work around it, like a custom database table to store the values from the first submission to be looked up on the second submission.
