    Is it possible to auto fill a large about of the info once they type in a business name?

    Asked by claytonchancy on December 27, 2016 at 04:27 PM

    For example, we have a steady complaint about it being a hassle for them to fill in there name, addres, shipping addres. CC info, phone number and so on each time.  I was wondering if they could just type in their business name and the rest auto fill.

    As far as I know there is not  a way achieve what you want, I mean, the data cannot be pre-filled automatically without being captured at least the first time in the form, it means that the form needs to be submitted at least once so the info can be captured and a link with the pre-filled info would be provided so when your user opens the form again he will notice the pre-filled info and he will not need to re-enter it again. 

    Here's a guide that will help you to pre-populate fields in your form: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Here's also a guide where you will find the steps to redirect your user to the pre-filled link to your form: Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page
