    I apologize if I misunderstood your request, but it is possible to prepopulate JotForm forms via URL parameters. As you control the date, you can simply create customized links that, when open, would result in automatically filled forms.

    We have a guide on that here: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let us know. Thank you.
