Yes, you can do that by giving them the link with the entered parameters.
For example. You can take a look at this sample jotform.
All you need to do is get the field names and add the values to them and send a link to your users.
This is the link without the anchored text (as above):
You can see how to do this here: Prepopulating fields to your JotForm via URL parameters
You could also submit a jotform with their data and just give them the edit link to submit the jotform again. This however would use 2 submissions (one made by you and another by the person actually filling out the jotform, meaning that the first option is the best to use with this in mind.
Do let us know if you have any further questions.
- BenflipsAnswered on July 20, 2016 at 06:45 AMHi - this is an old piece of feedback I got from you, and the links
provided have been updated and no longer work.
Can you let me know if this is still the best process and send me some
updated links please?

I checked the link provided by my colleague and they are still working.
This link is also updated and still the best way to pre-populate the fields in your form.

Hi. I followed your link just now, and I love that app feature.
I have given it 'permission' - but how do I regularly use it?
Can I have it somewhere on my JotForm home page, or must I always find that link, go through the page with the intro video, then select a form etc?
It would be much easier if from my My Forms page, I could select from a menu - "autofill" or something like that!
Hope that is possible.
Separately though, am i right in assuming that if we do this, and create a personalised form with URL parameters (either manually or through the app) that we cannot have that code embedded on our site?
Presumably, if I wanted it on a private page of my website, I would have to create a page for every separate form I personalised, it that right?
In a perfect world, I'd love to be able to host my form on my website on a private page, but send a link to that page in email to the client, and still have some of their personal details on the form...
Not sure if that is possible - or if the only workaround is to go to your server with the personalised URL...

It is currently not possible to use the Prepopulate app while on your My Forms page. You will need to visit the app page and use it from there. However, you can simply bookmark the Prepopulate App page on your browser so that you can easily find it when you need to use the app.
