Use existing field in other form and change value

I use a hidden field in a registration form to give a subscriber the status ‘Suspect’. Afterwards the subscriber is able to log in and fill in another form. I would like to use the existing hidden status field and change the value to ‘Prospect’ when the subscriber fills in the second form. How can I retrieve/use the existing status field in the second form?

Thanks for your help!

Hi @user65b767d0927ea695,

How are you currently defining the status ‘Suspect’?

If it is defined on their WP user profile as user meta you can use the {user} merge tag to retrieve a value to store into the second form. See {user} Merge Tag - Gravity Forms Documentation for more details.

If you want to update that value on the user as a part of the 2nd forms post-submission activities, you can either use gform_after_submission to determine the right user/value to update on their meta. Or, the Gravity Flow Update User step would allow you to do this without any custom code required including a condition to only update when the status = suspect.
