    is it possible to prepopulate fields to your jotform from a base in airtable? If so, how?

    would prefer not to use your spreadsheet to form widget as have to manually upload the spreadsheet with info on it each time its updated, so was wondering if there is a way could use URL parameters from airtable?

    We do not currently have an option to prepopulate the form fields from the Airtable.

    Let me escalate a feature request ticket to our developers on your behalf. We cannot provide any ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates on this.

    I have similar question, I would like to pre-populate the JotForm with my inventory list spreadsheet from Airtable, using a drop down menu from a configurable list and do the inventory management like that, this way every time I sell something my inventory levels are updated on Airtable, is that something you see possible?

    Any other suggestions I could do that? I know about the inventory widget but it doesn't give me any inventory reports.

    I second this request. I need to pre-populate fields based on information stored in Airtable. As of now, it seems like you can collect JF responses in AT but you can't pre-populate a JF based on data in AT so that you can update records. Unless I'm mistaken?

    I have moved your concern to a separate thread to avoid confusion.
