Auto-populate information from one form to another (same form)

Hello,

Does anyone know how to autopopulate the information from one form to
another within the same form? For example: let’s say I have a question for
the name of a village, and when I open up the same form the second time,
the name of the village shows up so that the mobile user can just skip
through it because nothing has changed.

I tried setting a loop in case management where when I save the question:
“Village name” to the case property: village_name. Then I used that same
case property, village_name, and loaded it into the form and saved it into
the question “Village name”. I tried this on CloudCare and I got an error
message.

Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Thanks.

Carol

Actually, this does work. Not sure why I was getting an error message at
first. Sorry about this.
