    5) Set Width on Matrix Elements :   Added matrix width controls -- Users can now set the table width and the cell width of the matrix form element.

     

    6) Prepopulate Values on Custom URL using Field Tags :   You can now include field tags e.g. {name} in Custom thank you URL to prepopulate field values. 

    Example:

    https://www.jotform.com/form/1234567890?name={name}

    https://www.jotform.com/form/1234567890? - Custom URL or 2nd form URL

    name - Name of the field from the  2nd form where the value will be autofilled. Check this screen to learn how to get field names via Inspect Element. https://shots.jotform.com/elton/get_field_name_inspect_element.png

    {name} - This is the field tag from the base form. Right click > Show Properties to get field tags of the field. This will be replaced with the real value after submissions.

    Was really hoping for IP address and/or GeoLocation. :-(

    @Masalmedia

    The IP address feature is already there, you can insert it in your email notification . Simply insert another row (click on the toolbar) and add the Form Field variable {ip}, label it as IP ADDRESS , as shown below

     

    On regards to Geolocation, please open a new thread requesting this feature. Name something like "User's Browser Info: Geolocation should be shown on email notification"

    As a response to Masalamedia in order to collect geolocation however clunky it is try using fbmip.com Then include in an email or a thank you page a link to your unique page and tag each submission separately by using the submission ID in the URL as the tag. Go to the website and check it out.

    @instantes

    @Masalamedia

    You may like to consider this workaround. You can use the following link appended with the ip tag {ip} on your form notification so it creates a clicklable link that would display all the IP details like Geolocation Information & Geolocation Map provided by whatismyipaddress.com

    http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/{ip}

    Example Result: http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/83.163.23.228

    Thank you!

    P.S. If you have any further inquiry, please open a new thread so we can assist you better. Thank you!

    Personally I like my workaround better as it also tests for browser features and compatibility. The results can then be tagged in an inbox parallel to Jotoform.

    I have also already put a Geolocation feature request in, but just to keep the creative juices flowing, my GeoLocation need so simple that the clever workarounds above are really overkill (and all require manual clicking).

    All I want is a line in my JF notification email that says the form was submitted from Germany, or Japan, or India, or Peru. That would allow us to quickly refer the submission to the appropriate service rep. Having geolocation handle country identification allows us to keep our form as short as possible (e.g. don't have to ask visitor to state their location) and keeps our screening staff from having to open lots of additional windows in their workflow.

    Fingers crossed this will someday be possible.

    All that said - thanks for the ideas suggested above. FBMIP.com will actually prove useful to a different project Im working on.
