    It is unfortunately not possible to import data into your form from outside sources without a fair bit of coding.  It is possible to have your fields pre-populated via the URL:


    Though you would need a way to construct a to your form that has the current logged in users username inserted.  Though it can be done, it would require a fair bit of setup outside of what we can assist you with.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
