    Hi,

    You can autofill the zip code by using url query strings. Take a look at this form of yours. Notice the url in the address bar?

    https://www.jotform.com/form/11384137844?volunteerAddress[postal]=99495

     

    To do so, you'd have to find first the id for your address field.

    Go to Setup & Embed > Email Alerts > Notification (click on any of your email notifications)

    In the Compose Email window, find this:

     

    Get the ID without the curly brackets then append [postal]=99495 to it. You may replace the number to any zip code you'd like.

    Then append that query string before a question mark (?) to your form's direct url so it becomes

    https://www.jotform.com/form/11384137844?volunteerAddress[postal]=99495

    Hope you find this useful. Let me know if you have further questions.  Thank you for using Jotform.

    This is not what I'm after.  I think I need another kind of widget instead of a form.
