    Unfortunately, you cannot import an external file and use it to prepopulate the form fields. However, you can use the Field Prepopulator app to autofill the forms.

    This app allows you to fill the fields you would like your users to see pre-filled and produces the generated URL to send to your client. Here's the link: https://prepopulate.jotform.io/.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
