    How to add Prefilled Form link in the Email and have Auto Fill enabled

    Asked by Shari Schulweis  on May 07, 2015 at 11:44 AM

    We are looking to create a customer onboarding form. We would like to be able to send an email to a customer and ask that they click on link to bring them to the form.  We would like their customer ID to autofill.  We will have several addresses that may or may not be same.  Is there a best template to use?  How do I set up contingent autofill.

    fill billing address same prefill

    Hi,

    You pre-fill the form with value to a specific field by following the method described on the user guide

    1. -Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    Example: You can add the link in the email to the form like this

    https://www.jotform.com/form/10565343954?fullName[prefix]=Dr.&fullName[first]=John&fullName[middle]=Doe&fullName[last]=Smith&fullName[suffix]=M.D.&selections30=Pillow&media=Internet&address=Katipunan,ZN%207109,%20Philippines

    as you can see on the screenshot below, when the form loads using the link, some fields are pre-filled already

     

    As for the Autofill feature, you can follow this user guide

    2. -How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

     

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
