    How to send external parameters to the form

    Asked by yageAdmin on March 12, 2014 at 04:27 PM


    Is there a way to send parameters to the form? I need to publish my form in some sites, but I need to register the information of the site or url where the data is collected.

    You can prepopulate a form by utilizing URL Parameters (for guide click here).

    Additional to this there is also an App that allows you to generate the code for the URL parameters. 

    Found here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_prepopulator.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Additionally, in case you would like to automatically grab a web page address, you might try a 'Get Referrer' Widget. It works great with a form Embed code.
