    URL parameter to pre-populate form field?

    Asked by pillarmarketing on May 20, 2014 at 08:26 PM

    I'm wondering if we might be able to create a link to our form with a URL parameter that would populate one of the form fields.  For example:

    If I were to e-mail the following link to someone and they clicked on it it would have the first form field filled out with the url parameter "johnsonFamily"
    https://secure.jotformpro.com/form/41398083334962?reservationName=JohnsonFamily

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Nice! I feel smart now.

    Do you have instructions on how to include a link in the auto responder or notification e-mails that link back to the form with all of the information filled in that was just submitted? I think I have the idea on how to do it but thought I would check with you first to see if there was an easier way!  Thanks again for any suggestions.
