    Hi there, I'm having difficulty retrieving the URL of pages that I embed my form into. The test site is https://sites.google.com/openly.com/jotform-test-1/home. I used the JavaScript embed script method for the site.

    When I launch the form from Jotfrom, the submission shows that the URL is referred correctly (

    https://form.jotform.com/123456789123456). However, when the embedded form is filled in from the Google Site, the URL rotates.

    Current (bad) behavior: https://10digitrotatingcode-atari-embeds.googleusercontent.com/embeds/long-identifier123456%^&*%^*&/inner-frame-minified.html?jsh=m%3B%2F_%2Fscs%2Fapps-static%2F_%2Fjs%2Fk%3Doz.gapi.en.utl9jrRztb8.O%2Fam%3DwQE%2Fd%3D1%2Fct%3Dzgms%2Frs%thisalsostaysthesameeverytime%2Fm%3D__features__

    Expected (good) behavior: https://sites.google.com/openly.com/jotform-test-1/home

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Greetings and thank you for your message.


    I have tested this option on Google sites, and unfortunately, there is not much we can do here. The reason is how Google is implementing the URL display.

    You are able to add a hidden field and fill the data manually. 

    This problem should not be present once you have a custom domain.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
