    How to prepopulate form fields via URL parameters?

    Asked by Ryan Gunness  on February 03, 2017 at 11:36 AM

    Is it possible to pass a variable to a form by adding it to the url string

    example https://form.jotform.com/xxxxx?name=john&source=radio


    I am guessing if we are hosting the source code for the form then we can edit it to pass this data into a hidden filed in the form.

    Please advise.
