    Hi,

    I have already sent a query regarding redirect url to be added to submit button of the form. A quick addition to the same that if there is no way of adding any such redirect url, Can we pass some hidden params with values while opening up the form and get the same params and values along with other form data in webhook response?

    Looking forward for a quick response.


    Thanks and Regards,

    Akanksha

    Hi again,

    I am sorry, but I am not sure if I understand your question in full. We have webhooks feature, please check it here: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    Also, it is possible to populate form (and its hidden fields) via URL parameters: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    If linked guides will not answer your question, please get back to us here and we will keep checking.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Here are some more questions that i would like to ask regarding jot form :
    1. While prepolutating Fields to JotForm via URL params, Can we restrict
    end users from modifying that field?
    2. In case of redirect url instead of thank you page, is the redirect url
    fixed for a form or can we pass some variable values for the redirect url?
    Eg. Redirect url : https://example.com/form/user/{{userId}}
    Here, can the userId field be passed while opening the form from request
    and according set in redirect url before redirecting?
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Thanks and best regards,
    Akanksha

    Hi,

    1. You can set a field to be read-only, but advanced users will still be able to modify a link to pass different value. If this is acceptable, you can enable 'read-only' in field's properties:

    2. Yes, you can create link with variables. Here is one related help guide: How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form
