    How can attach a link to a form?

    Asked by blackswanhome on February 20, 2017 at 02:26 PM

    Is it possible to attach the most recent page a customer was looking at to a jot form. An example would be, we sell fireplace inserts, and if a customer is looking at one, we want to have a "learn more" link on every stove/insert page and when they click on it, it'll go to a jot form, which will hopefully attach what they were looking at when they clicked "learn more." 

    Customer looks at Hearthstone Castleton, customer wants to learn more. Customer then click's "learn more" and it goes to a jot form which will automatically fill in an area that says "interested in" or something to that effect.

    Yes, it is possible to add a hyperlink inside the form. You can use the Text tool for that. Here's how:

    1. Open your form and click the Add form element button. Under the Basic tab, select the Text field and drag it to your form.

    2. Double click the Text field or click the Pen tool button to edit the text. Highlight the text adn then click the Insert/edit link button.

    3. After that, complete the information needed then click the OK button.

    You can prepopulate form fields through the URL parameters. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters. You may also use the Field Prepopulator App. Here's the link: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
