    I am keen to prepopulate a jotform question which is either a:

    1. Radio button or
    2. Drop down option

    I can see you have an article which shows how to prepopulate a checkbox but I can't see any information on Radio buttons or drop downs. Can you advise if this is possible and if yes, can you please provide me with some details on what I need to do?

    Thanks

    Hello Mayadenardi,

    The easiest way to prepopulate dropdown values via URL is using the PrePopulate Fields app.

    https://prepopulate.jotform.io/

    I've recorded an example video:

    For radio button.

    1). I use the prepopulation method https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters 

    2). I use the update/calculate condition https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic

    3). In the update/calculate condition, I put the exact option value of the radio buttons.

    The option1=sample in the prepopulate URL is the unique field's name and value which is "sample".

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any questions or if you need further assistance.
