    Is there a way of passing data to a specific field on a form

    Asked by Rouvers on November 28, 2013 at 07:36 AM

    I want to pass a reference number to the form when I call the form. The reference number is the first field on the form.

    In this specific case the form is for a job application and I would like to feed the specific job reference into the form when the form is called.

    Hi Mark,

    You can use URL Parameters such as the one provided from this guide: Prepopulating Form Fields via URL Parameters. You can also use our Field Populator App: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_prepopulator

    You can then call the webpage as: http://markr5.v3.activplatform.co.uk/opportunities.html?jobReference=000111 where as the following:

    jobReference = your form field name for the reference number field

    000111 = is the reference numbers, you can always change this but you have to manually do this for every applicant.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
