    Enable "Autocomplete" attribute in Form inputs

    Asked by schneiderm on July 10, 2015 at 09:00 AM

    I know in standard html forms you can control browser based autofill of previously used forms by adding AUTOCOMPLETE="OFF" or "ON" to the form action.

    Seems like jot form has this built into be OFF (i'm using script method in a wordpress site)

    Is there a way I can enable this so Firefox, Chrome, IE etc will autofill the fields if a

    user submitted a form in the past...

    This is more typical experience on non sensitive forms and is usually offered as an option

    on many username and login pages (at least in firefox which I mostly use)

    I have an order upload page for customers and would be super convenient if for

    every job they sent in they could more quickly submit if all the non-changing stuff like

    name, company etc would just be remembered from the last time they used form.

    help?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    To confirm, you are referring to the Autocomplete function in the HTML inputs, just like what is discussed in this link. Unfortunately, we do not have that function that directly auto fills based from the last or previous inputs.

    However, you can try enabling the Auto Fill feature in your form, see if that's something that can work. Here's a guide on that: http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature.

    I will also forward this to our developers as a feature request, this might be handy for users. But I' can't guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon. We will update you as soon as we hear any news on this.

    Thank you.
