    Hi,

    I have been able to pre-populate text fields but can't get the date or dropdown fields to work.

    What do I need to add in to the URL to get these? .....date={date}&event={event}&days={days}

    Thanks



    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Prepopulate the Same Form with Data from a Previous Submission?

    Could you please let us know what are the fields in the form you would like to prepopulate?

    I wasn't able to find event and days fields?

    I did check your form and found that you have added condition to redirect user to same form with user data filled in. Do you want to populate the form date and dropdown field with the same data which user filled in form?

    Please use the following field pre-population URL in your condition and that will solve your problem:

    https://form.jotform.co/92658984701874?event={URLENCODE:event}&date[month]={date:month}&date[day]={date:day}&date[year]={date:year}


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Hi again,
    I have added another drop down that I need to populate with the same data
    from the user filled form but can't get it working. Just get a blank.
    Is it possible to have two drop downs?

    We have also reached our limit for submissions but all have been for
    refining our form and testing. Most submissions have been deleted soon
    after the test.
    Is it all possible that we could continue above our 100 limit?
    Thanks

    I am glad to know that you were able to pre-populate dropdown fields. 

    On your question related to submission limit, please note that all submissions you receive is form is counted including your test submission as well. If you exceed the submission limit of your account, you will have to upgrade your account or wait for the first day f next month when the submission counters are reset.
