    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.

    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.
