    How can I pre-fill a form from a user's login details

    Asked by AllSpecialKids on March 21, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    Once a user logins in to our website, I would like their details to be pre-filled in any forms they choose.

    At a minimum this should be their e-mail and user name. At best it would be the full details from our database as there is no point in repeatedly filling out the same data.

    Can this be done in Jotform? Can Jotform read from a session cookie?

    I suggest you review this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/237-PHP-Forms-Explained

    JotForm can Send Post Data also -- refer to this guide 



    If you want to read session data and use it on the form, you will need to use the form's source code and program a separate code to populate the form using session data.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
