    Hi,


    I am trying to accomplish something and can't figure out how.

    I have few clients that would like to have some of their order form Pre-populated already, some of the parts of the form, not all of it because every order is different.


    As an example, name, company name, address, etc..

    Please advise

    Yes it is possible to prepopulate form field by taking advantage of our URL parameter feature. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-prepopulating-fields-to-your-jotform-via-url-parameters

    Hope this helps.

    Ashwin,


    In today's technology, you want to tell me I have to do all of this in order to pre-populate some info, that's insane. I have like 40 clients that I need to pre-populate parts of a form, this should be much easier for standard users.

    I was expecting a button option in each filed on normal form edit that would give you an option to pre-populate the name so the user won't need to input it again. This URL option is a little crazy, are we in 2010 ;)?


    Something to work on maybe Jotform?
