Can I pass user data into a form - import data from my databaseAsked by jenspepie on January 31, 2014 at 03:35 PMI'd like to use some data from an existing database and merge them into a jotform-hosted form. So I can pass e.g. Name, city etc to the form and this data are shown up in certain fields of the form. My idea is to use your API, create a submission with the known user data and then call the form. Is this a good practice?TIA!Regards Jens
Yes you can.
Please use this app to do so: http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data
Your data needs to be in a spreadsheet or in CSV format.
Follow the instructions precisely in order to match the fields of your data to the form.
Let us know if you hit a bump.
Your question is moved to a separate thread and shall be addressed there shortly.
