    Hi - 

    I followed through the instructions for how to pre-populate form fields - particularly checkboxes - and I can't seem to get this working.  

    Here are my steps and the development form: 

     

    1.  Our embed code: <script type="text/javascript" src="http://form.jotformpro.com/jsform/40145759534963"></script>
     
    2.  Sample Code: Form with prepopulated name fields:
    http://www.jotform.com/form/10565343954?fullName[prefix]=Dr.&fullName[first]=Joey&fullName[middle]=Winchester&fullName[last]=Smith&fullName[suffix]=M.D.&address=123 Some St., Some City, Some State, Some country, 1234-111&selections30=Pillow&media=Internet&pleaseChoose[]=Wood,Gold,Metal,Soft drinks,Cheese cake 
     
    3.  Checkboxes: Form Field Name: q7_pleaseSend7[]
     
    Identify each check box value first.

    5.  My New Code: 

         Embed Script: 

         <script type="text/javascript" src="http://form.jotformpro.com/jsform/40145759534963?q7_pleaseSend7[]=Single Family Homes by NVHomes"></script>

    The first check box doesn't get checked - 

     

    Can you help me out?
