    I'm trying to prepopulate a form using query parameters in the URL. Base URL is  https://form.jotform.com/73375806384162

    I want to prepoulate First name, Last name, and a hidden unique ID field called CaseSafeID.

    The url string I'm using is 
    https://form.jotform.com/73375806384162?fullName[first]=Chad&fullName[last]=Sullivan&caseSafe=0036100000j7rv4

    In this case trying to pre-pop for Chad Sullivan, with CaseSafe=0036100000j7rv4

    I am also trying to use the passed in fullName field in a text element, as in this screenshot

    But if you click the URL with parameters that I pasted in above, the Name field is not populated -- neither in the text field nor in the question that asks for Full Name (first question after the intro text). What am I doing wrong?

    The "unique name" for your name field is wrong. You can check the Unique Name of that field by going to Settings > ADVANCED > click Field Details.

    So the correct URL should be.


    https://form.jotform.com/73375806384162?name[first]=Chad&name[last]=Sullivan&caseSafe=0036100000j7rv4

    Changes are highlighted in yellow.
