Is it possible to fill a form full of testing data without having to answer each question on the form

    I want to test the zapier connection between Jotform and Formstack.

    I am not sure how to go about doing this.  There are over 370 fields in my form.

    There are lots of conditional questions that only appear if the correct answer is given. 

    If I were able to prefill all of the form with one click I would be able to submit that form and I could then send it to a testing document to see which of the fields in that document are filled and which are not.

    I have seen the "fill form" button at the top of the document. It does not work for this purpose.

    The "fill form" skips Yes/No questions and any fields that are hidden are not filled.

    Do you have any suggestions as to how I can quickly fill EVERY field in my form? 


    Thank you

    Hi Mike,


    Thanks for your answer.  I don't believe that these will extensions will fill fields that are hidden due to a yes/no response.


    Is there another way?

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience. I'm not sure I can think of any other way to pre-fill forms. I'll try to ask my colleagues to see if they are using other applications aside from what was already suggested. Once I have any information, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

    Mike,

    I was hoping that these extension might be able to part fill the form.  The jotform shows one question at a time.  Is it possible to use extensions like this when the jotform is in this mode?

    Unfortunately, there is no other method to quickly fill a long form, specially one that has a lot of conditionally hidden fields. 

    So, if you need to fill all fields for testing purposes, my suggestion would be to clone your form, delete all "Show" conditions, and then use the 'Fill Form' button of the preview.

    Let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.
