    Thanks for the reply. Its not pre-populating data.

    I would like to have the data from a external source (eg Google Spreadsheet), to be inserted in a field.

    For example, let's say there is dropdown field. I want the values (dropdown values) to be fed from a Google Spreadsheet Column (or Range).

    If you can create a link between a field and Google Spreadsheet through Javascript.

    Do you get my idea?

    Hello raviprashanth83,

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature. It is currently not possible to get the data from any external source and populate it in your dropdown or any other field.

    You will have to download your form's source code and write your own code to achieve your requirement. 

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the reply.

    Could you provide an (or more) example, on how to write the javascript code using the source code. I see this as an open door for the great improvement in the Jot Form usage.

    Thanks for your reply.

    If you do not know about javascript codcing, you would need to hire a programmer to create the solution using the form's source code.

    Thanks.
