      HI Alexander,

      I’m copying 3x field’s using a Rule:
      If field Status is changed to Approved, Set field value.
      1. Hours, 2. 1st Approver, 3. 2nd Approver.
      2. Req Hours, 2. Req 1st Approver, 3. Req 2nd Approver

      But I don’t want to blank the designated field if a Requested field has not been filled in.
      Is there a way to only copy the value if the field is NOT blank?

      My Edit Form is attached for more clarity.
      Thanks for your time.

      I’m not quite sure I follow exactly what you’re doing, but there’s an option in the UI to only set the field value if the destination field isn’t empty. See screenshot.
      Does that help?

      Are you trying to only copy it if the SOURCE field is not empty? – if so you will have to use custom js. Try calling a function like this from your rule:

      function copyFieldValues() {
          var val = getFieldValue("YOUR_FROM_FIELD");
          if (val.length > 0) {
              setFieldValue("YOUR_TO_FIELD", val);

      Repeat the code for the other fields inside the function.
