    Hi,


    I have been reading up on the feature you have that allows for us to prepopulate form fields. However, as we are looking to embed the form that we use in a page on our website is it still possible to use this feature?


    Thanks

    Hello Adrian - If you'll be embedding the form into a plain HTML webpage, this method will work. Here's an example:

    https://shots.jotform.com/johnrex/testembed.html?name[first]=john&name[last]=rex

    As you can see, I was able to pre-populate the form's Name field.

    However, this don't work if you'll be using a CMS in building you webpage (e.g. Wordpress, Wix).

    Thanks John,


    Unfortunately, I was thinking of adding a page to my wordpress site. However, the main thing I am trying to do is avoid sending my survey respondents to a URL that includes jotform. Not because I don't love your product (I do) but I am trying to make my survey look more professional.


    So my new question is can I build a standard html page with the survey embedded within it and still prepopulate the form?


    Thanks

    Greetings Adrian,

    As suggested by my colleague if you create a page in plain HTML then you'll be able to do it. If it is done on any CMS then it will not work as explained above.

    Should you have any other concerns please let us know.

    Thanks
