    How can I prepopulate a field from an email with recipient's email address?

    Asked by Sophocracy on August 24, 2012 at 02:01 PM

    I have a question to which I didn't find an exact answer on your forum:


    I want to prepopulate an email field on a Jotform from an email "unsubscribe" link when the email recipient's email address does not exist on any other JotForm.


    I'd certainly appreciate any help you can provide.

    That can be accomplished via URL parameters , you would need to make 2 forms

    Follow this solution that was given some months ago by one of our brillian support representatives.

    Thank you for your prompt response. I'm sorry to say that I had seen the
    solution you suggest previously and it doesn't solve my "problem". The
    solution you provide presupposes that the data exists on on form 1.

    What I'm asking is, can I insert an email address into a JotForm directly
    from the email itself?

    Can you provide more details on what you wanted to do on the form?

    if you do something like this on the form URL 

    http://form.jotformeu.com/form/12345678?email18=jonathan@mailcatch.com it will pre-populate the email field (email18)  of the form.
