Is there an app or widget that allows for auto fill of forms?

    We use jot form for our organization and membership renewals and event registration. I have had several members ask why they have to fill the membership form each time. I searched the app and widget library and didn't see it but could have overlooked it.

    Thank you for your attention

    It is possible to pre-populate fields here in JotForm. Please use the Field Prepopulator App in order to pre-register values to some fields. Here's the link: https://prepopulate.jotform.io/.

    You may also do it manually through the URL parameters, here's a guide: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters.

    You can also save the form's field values locally via the browser local storage until the form is submitted. Here's a guide: How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-on-Forms

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need further help. Thank you.

    Thank you. 

    That is a help. Is there a way for the form users, not the form creator to have their info stored for other or future forms. Can form users create a profile so their basic  info is always loaded such as name, email, phone, address?

    When the form is enabled with Auto-fill, the information will be stored in the browser storage. Unfortunately, there is no option to enable the users to store the information for future forms since the information stored locally at the user's end. This information can be achieved only by the browser settings or any third party application based on the user's interest.

    Hope this information helps!
