    Can I pre-populate the Date Form

    Asked by npuffer on September 16, 2014 at 08:19 PM

    I would like to set up my date form so its already populated with a date. I don't want to use the current date but rather a specific date. Is this possible?

    Hi,

    The only workaround I could think of that is working so far is populating the date field through URL parameter.

    Example:

    http://www.jotform.us/42578183557163?summerStart[month]=09&summerStart[day]=23&summerStart[year]=2014

    Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you!
