    Can I automatically pass the registered user information (e.g. name, email) from a Wordpress site to an embedded Jotform form?

    I want the user to sign-in once to the site; then their basic ID info (name, email) is passed to any Jotform form that is embedded on the site.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks!

    Please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Now, it depends on your website if it is actually possible, so please provide the URL of the website so we can check.

    Thank you!

    I haven't built it yet, I'm trying to see if it's possible without a lot of custom coding.

    I would use WordPress as a platform. My thought was to use Jotform if I can, since I'm familiar with it and like the tools and flexibility.  

    I would think this was a common point of integration between WordPress and Jotform?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, no. You can only embed the form on WordPress installed website. The passing of values has to be coded considering that you are fetching the information from the WordPress database itself.
