    Hi Tim,

    Can you please provide us more details about the issue.

    Share to us the URL of the jotform. If it is embedded on a website, share also the URL of your website where we can test the used form.

    We will be able to provide you with better assistance once we understand more about the issue.

    Thanks.

    For example i have

    http://form.jotform.co/form/40215474804854?positionTitle=Job%20TitleTest%201

     

    and then

    http://form.jotform.co/form/40215474804854?positionTitle=Job%20TitleTests%202

     

    When I open the first one its OK but when I open the second one after it seems to 'remember' the first prepopulate  and not update wit hthe new?

    Hi,

    I believe this happens because you have enabled the Auto Fill feature, it saves the last session that was created, also the field is a read-only type that is was it contributes to the inability to edit it.

     

     

    You can try testing your form by disabling the auto fill feature and see if it prepopulates correctly.

    Do let us know if this works.

    Thank you.
