    We have a URL to prefill our delivery forms with information from our database.

    How do we create a URL that creates the right amount of fields in our Matrix Dynamique based on the amount of items in a specific delivery?

    Can the URL be updated each time to reflect a different amount of fields in the table, thereby making a different amount of rows in our table be generated each time?

     

    Thank You!

     

    I'm not sure if I was clear, but we're not passing information from one form to another. We already have the URL being generated from our database.

    Our question is, how do we use the URL to generate additional, prefilled fields based on the amount of products being delivered for that form?

    You may populate your form fields using URL parameters here is a guide:https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    However, it is not possible to populate the Matrix Dynamic widget using URL parameter.


    Hope this information helps.

    To clarify, do you want the URL generated from your database to be dynamic?

    Can you please explain further how you want the URL parameter to work with your form?


    We will wait for your response.

    Yes, the URL should be dynamic. 

    The URL should create the necessary amount of records needed on each form, and then populate those fields.

    You may use the field names to assign the URL parameter to the specific field.
