    Hi is there a way of pre filling out some of the information for the customer before sending over the link?

    We have to complete staff names and sizes for example

    You can use our PrePopulate app to pre-fill your form fields and send a link of the form with some fields already filled. 

    Here's the link to the app:

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, widgets cannot be pre-filled due to their nature, they're loaded from different resources within an iFrame, this makes  that process of passing data a bit hard since elements inside iFrames cannot be accessed from outside. 

    You would need to switch to basic fields if you would need to have these fields pre-populated.

    By basic fields my colleague meant these:

          

    So you should replace those fields with Short text entry, Long text entry, and number field so your prefill will work.

    Let us know how that worked.

    Thank you!

    Yes it is possible, you just need to make them shrink, please check this guide:

    You can also change the width of the fields there. 

    If you need further assistance please let us know.

    Thank you!
