    Every season, I have a similar sign up form and many of the same people sign up again.  It would be great if I could have the user enter their name and then have jotform look up their information from a previous form or spreadsheet and fill in the pertinent fields in the new form.   Any ideas?

    Hi bhegman,

    You can achieve this by using Conditional Logics in the form. It will populate data to the form based on the option or value that put chose or entered. If it is an existing user, you can probably try using a drop down of names.

    This is a sample form that I've created - http://support.jotform.com/form/42863115575963

     

    On the form editor, I created a drop down for names and corresponding email fields with default values for each.

    Then I go to Conditions Wizard and selected Show/Hide a Form Field

    Then I add rules and condition so that when user chose a name, the appropriate email will pop up with a default value on it.
