    If you would like to find the field name of a field in your form manually through "inspect element", my suggestion would be is to right-click right on the input field and look for the attribute, "name".

    (please see screenshot below)

    However, if the http://prepopulate.jotform.io/ really doesn't work for you even after you tried to clear your browser's data, I suggest you try to create the URL manually by following the instructions in this guide: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    You may also find the guide below useful when creating the URL.


    If, in any case, you might need our assistance in creating the URL, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help you. Just give us the forms that are involved and your requirements.

    Thank you.

    I just would like to inform you that I have submitted a ticket to our developers about the issue with the http://prepopulate.jotform.io/ since I was also able to also reproduce it on my end.

    Although we cannot provide you any ETA to when this will be fixed, rest assured that once there is an update from our development team, we will update you in this thread the soonest.
