    Is there a way to have different pre-fills for the same form. To be more detailed, can I have different pre-fills for the same person on the same form?


    Thank you!

    If you're using prepopulate URL: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Then yes, you will have to create multiple URLs and share to the person the appropriate one.

    If you had something else in mind, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    I have a follow up question to your answer. How do you create multiple URL’s for the same form?

    Hey Lucy - If you'll continue with the suggestion provided by Nik, then the URLs will differ based on the URL parameters you will use to pre-fill the form. For example:

    https://form.jotform.com/53533976064967?fullName[prefix]=Dr.&fullName[first]=John&fullName[middle]=Doe&fullName[last]=Smith&fullName[suffix]=M.D.

    https://form.jotform.com/53533976064967?fullName[prefix]=Dr.&fullName[first]=Jane&fullName[middle]=Doe&fullName[last]=Smith&fullName[suffix]=Ph.D.

    Notice that these are identical forms, but the prepopulated values differ, along with the URLs.

    Hi,
    I have a follow up question.
    We pre-filled a form, got a unique link, then pre-filled the same form again (and received another unique link), and the first pre-fill is overriding the second, even though each pre-fill gave us a unique link?
    We pre-filled this form twice for the same "submitter" name, but our choices on the pre-fills are different. So essentially, it's 2 unique pre-fills for the same user on the same form, with 2 unique links, but the first pre-fill is overriding the second.
    Let me know how to resolve this issue!
    Thank you,
