    How to autofill fields to so that users do not have type all the information again?

    Asked by COLV17 on September 17, 2014 at 06:52 PM

    Is there any way to amend forms after submission either by the submitter or by me so as to not have to type all information again? 

    And on the PDF link on the thank you message; can it be moved further down the page so the message can read; " to view your form p!ease click on link below"?  Can the submitter receive a link to their form via emai?  Obviously on the thank u message; once they leave the screen the link will be gone & they may need to access/view later. 

     

    Thank u so much again.  Loving the forms; highly recommended!

    Hello COLV17,

    If I understand your question correctly, basically you want the form to show the already input data so that user do not have to type it again in the form field but just modify it. There is no built in feature to achieve this requirement. Please be noted that most of the web browsers today have a built-in feature that automatically fills out form fields and is called autocomplete.

    If this does not work for you then you can pre-populate your form fields by taking advantage of our "Field Prepopulator" app. This should help you to build a form URL which will pre-populate your form fields. You can use this URL to share your form or in the embed code as well.

    You may also like to take a look at the following guide as well:

    As we cannot answer multiple questions in one thread, i have moved your question related to PDF link in a new thread and you will be answered here:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/430680 

    Thank you!
