Is there a way to auto-fill a form field with a link from another page?

    I have a form on an e-commerce site. I would like a link on each of the product pages to link to the form page and auto-fill a particular field with a product number. The product number would come from the link on the previous product page the user was at before coming to the form page.

    Is there a feature in JotForm that will allow me to do this? Is there a way to code this with a simple html active link tag?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The form fields can be populated with the URL parameters.


    So, you can try to use parameters added to the page with embedded form.


    You will also need to use Embed or Source code embedding method in this case.

    However, the pre-population might work or might not work depending on your website.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
