    Why are my previewed forms not updating

    Asked by mschmitt on July 28, 2015 at 09:25 AM

    I am creating a large number of pre-populated forms, but whenever I try to preview one of them I am taken to the same form over and over. The attached screenshot shows the form that shows up no matter what URL I use, as can be seen by the highlights. Why can I only see this one form, and how can I get the links to take me to the correct place? 

     

    I think that I am using the correct format for prepopulated URLs, for example:

    That seems like a cache problem in your browser. So I would suggest to clear it. I also would like to know if you are using this app to prepopulate your forms?

    http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_prepopulator

    When you use that app, it takes easier to generate the URL's that you can try in a private or incognito window.
