    hello,

      I cannot prepopulate any fields within the configurable list widget or narrative fields widget.  Upon further inspection I noticed that all field IDS have only a singular FIELD_ID regardless of how many fields I program into the widget.  Screen shot shows field details for one of the narrative fields and configurable list widgets as example (it has multiples fields and only 1 field ID for both!).  When you look at the HTML source to get the field ID I get:<input type="text" class="textbox" name="DialAgent" size="10" "="">so when you look at the advanced>field details you get FIELD_ID  is #input_3 and thats it.for the configurable list widget same thing.  I noticed that these widgets are iframes ... is it possible to prepoulate these fields?  I am trying to make a clean dynamic web form for our lead generation and am trying to use the two widgets in particular to make my entire form look sleek and clean!! Please help!!! I will upgrade my account right now if we can resolve this!

    Unfortunately it is not possible to pre-populate these widgets. You can however use standard fields. I cloned your form and modified it using standard fields:

    https://form.jotformpro.com/72286794404969

     

    Then to prepopulate it:

    https://form.jotformpro.com/72286794404969?name[first]=James&name[last]=Bourke&address[addr_line1]=36%20HP&address[addr_line2]=MS&address[city]=L&address[state]=Len&address[postal]=NFX&phoneNumber[full]=0857269773&input14=Mr%20Agent&howMuch=1000&getThis=September%20start

     

    If you don't know already, this tool is excellent for prepopulating your forms:
