    Pre Populated Hidden Fields are not working

    Asked by jhdreamer on July 15, 2013 at 03:34 PM

    Hidden fields that are to-be prepopulated are not being populated at all. example:(http://form.jotformpro.com/form/123456789123456?HiddenFieldName=exampleText) would not populate with 'exampletext' but would instead be blank.

    This is a method used as part of our registration proccess and is causing a little chaos because it is broken right now.

    I saw another post about this but I guess you guys made it private.

    We are very sorry for the troubles you are facing due to this issue.

    You are right, prepopulating is not working correctly with the hidden fields at this moment.

    The issue has been escalated to our Development Team.

    We will get back to you with the update once it is fixed.
