    Hello,

    I want to prepopulate a jotform field with data from outside the jotform, say from an API, query string, or external database. For example, I'd like to see if it's possible to have a 'company name' dropdown field fill with options from our company name database.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    It is possible to prepopulate the fields using URL parameters. By this method, you can prepopulate the fields coming from an API.
