Use previous form answers through answer piping

Base logic in form fields on previous answers or use them to personalize your Fillout form with answer piping. Display read only fields.


In many places in Fillout, you may notice a blue + button. This lets you reference:
  • Previous form inputs
  • URL parameters
  • Dates (e.g. today, a month from now, etc.)

Referencing from the blue + buttons

Whenever you see this blue +, you can reference a previous form input by clicking the same button followed by Continue on the page you'd like to reference from.

Referencing in field logic

To base show/hide logic for fields on previous form inputs, we can click the Logic section on a field and Set conditional logic. Here, every time we click Pick reference, the same menu or dropdown as above will be visible. Click here for more details.

Referencing in headings/field labels

To reference previous form inputs in plain text in the form, we can type @ in a form field to show the reference menu similar to the example above.
