    We would like to use Jotform for a COVID screening app for our employees and would like to use a name search rather than an regular text box to identify the employees.  We have 500 or so employees.

    Hello @Howard_Phil,

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    The best method to accomplish your objective would be to use our Spreadsheet to Form widget which allows you to prepopulate your form with information from a spreadsheet. The data is matched by a unique code, which can be shared with your employees to enter in the form to pull in their specific data.

    Here is a very helpful user guide to assist you in setting this widget up in your form: How-to-Use-the-Spreadsheet-to-Form-Widget

    Please feel free to reach out again if you have any further questions or concerns, we are always happy to help!
