    Can value for report filter be passed via URL parameter?

    For example, have a report link on a Thank you page in a similar format:

    https://hipaa.jotform.com/report/9254495843069?empl_id={empl_id}

    where {empl_id} is a value passed from the form

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Hello Andrew,

    At the moment forms can push the values to Thank You page to create a populated link: How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form

    But, I'm afraid, reports will not be able to apply filters based on that. I will submit a feature request for a new option and if this will be implemented, we will inform you via this thread. 

    Thank you!

    I use jotform for employment forms, gathering client info and employee timesheets submissions. There are bunch of use cases for ability to filter reports with URL. One of them is with employees requesting ability to see on calendar view timesheets that they submitted. I can employ calendar report specifically for that but if it does not support filtering via URL parameters (for example via employee id) then it does not make sense to show data submitted by all employees. Any other way to achieve what I'm looking for?

    Thanks,

    Andrew
