    Hello Jefrey,

    You can take advantage of our "URL Parameter" or "Field Prepopulator" feature to populate form fields with any desired text or URL.

    Here are the steps you should follow:

    #1. Add a hidden form field in your form.

    #2. Generate your form URL which populates your hidden field with the desired URL.

    #3. Share the generated URL with all the users. When they click on the URL and form is submitted, the prepopulated data of hidden field will be captured in the submission.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
