    I am aware that this can be done by embedding the form and using a java script. I need to be able to auto submit the form using only the url. Can this be done?

    No, that would not be possible.

    You would always need to open the form in order for your user to click to make the submission.

    I have been thinking more about this. Could you please tell us a bit more details about what you would like to achieve so that we can see if there would be a way to do this.

    we are feeding form values into the fields via a web hook to url post. We want that form to auto submit so that we can capture data mid way through a multi page sign up process with unbounce. We were able to do this by embedding the form and then using a script to auto submit. The problem we're running into now is posting those values back to a url to auto populate the next page in the flow. From what I can tell this can be done with PHP by enabling the posting feature on the form. . . but i'm really not much of a developer so i'm starting to get in over my head.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if an auto submit and a Javascript is needed, if you are just looking on a way to let your users to auto save the current progress on their form, assuming the form is very long and they would like to continue at a later time or when the browser accidentally closes, then you can try the following guides:
