    Prepopulate dropdown form field

    Asked by PriceIT on February 02, 2014 at 05:07 PM

    Is it possible to have a preselected value in a dropdown field based on the url?

    When someone clicks this (http://www.fishnets.com/apple-iphone) then the first field, "Product Type" will have a value of 'Phone' and "Phone Type" will have a value of 'Apple iPhone'

    Page URL:
    http://form.jotform.us/form/40288228145152

    Hi,

    Yes that's possible thru using URL parameter.

    Example:

    http://form.jotform.us/form/40288228145152?productType=Phone&phoneType=Apple%20iPhone

    Use this app to generate prepopulated URL. http://prepopulate.jotform.io/
