    Prepopulating form for collaboration purposes

    Asked by mchardy on March 12, 2017 at 03:51 PM

    Good day,

    I am wondering if I could create an evolutive form for collaboration - I will explain my situation so you can visualize.

    The form is intended for my technician to inspect an appartment and for him to advise on the required works and include pictures of the place, etc. For a specific request, which is linked to a specific apartment, I may have to include text of the required works to be done in order to direct the technician on site.

    Is there a way to add text to the form without having to complete the required fields but to leave them required for my technician?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    This is possible to generate a form link with prepopulated field (your custom text). Please take a look at the following guide.

    Prepopulating Fields to Your JotForm via URL Parameters

    The technician will need to use that link in order to open the form.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
