    Can I have a save button that saves a pre-populated url?

    Asked by memaxt on June 16, 2015 at 10:28 AM

    Hi there,

    I've seen your tutorial on how to save the current session and continue later...however, As the data i collect is sensitive and do not store any of the submission data on jotform...i use the auto submission deleter as and when a new submission comes in.

    Anyway is the following possible.

    Have a form embedded via iframe on my main website and a button to save the current form values to desktop as a shortcut.

    so when i click on the shortcut it will populate the iframe data with previous data entered.

    so in a sense when the user presses save it will export the full source code including the values entered.

    Many thanks

    Max

    At the moment that it is not possible but you can add a calculation field to the form and then add the fields' names so that it creates a url that populates with the values from the form:

    You can test and clone the demo form:

    Here is how to find a field name:
