    Hi Arvin,

    That might be possible since we support prepopulating values to the fields via URL query. Prepopulating the fields to your JotForm via URL parameters.

    If you can also provide to us the button you've mentioned, maybe we can assist you in setting this up with your form if there's a way.

    Thanks!

    @Arvin Denorte

    Please let us know which field of your form you are trying to prepopulate and we will try to send you the URL for that.

    Here is the example to populate the mobile number field of your form: http://www.jotform.com/31631707360448?mobileNumber9=958987

    Thanks,

    Hi Arvin,

    Yes, JotForm is completely free for basic usage. You can create as many forms as you want. We'd suggest to register an account here.

    Yes, HTTP post data is available on forms. To enable it, check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    Thanks!

    Hi Arvin,

    The post data can be set on your form preferences as seen on the guide. If you want to send data and fill it to your JotForm form, you have to do that in your PHP script.

    An example can be found here: http://www.jotform.me/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    Take a look on the PHP script, it autofills data on another form via post data, you can do the same in your custom form.

    Thanks!

    @Arvin

    You mean add "button" to your form here? If yes, you can achieved that when you use your form source code and add your button codes there. How to get your Form Source Code.

    Or, you can also use Free Text HTML tool under Power Tools in the form builder.

    Thanks!
