    Hi

    I want to embed a link in an e-mail with a pre populated values. When the user clicks the link the form is submitted. There are no shown fields to the user, just a link that I have prepoulated with the values.

    Is this possible without the use of javascript, just a plain url/link?

    Hi,

    You can create a URL to your form that will pre-populate your fields:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    Set all the fields in the form to be hidden and I believe you will have the setup you are looking for. 

    All they would need to do is submit the form.  There is no way to have the form submit automatically when the link is clicked.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    Thanks for your reply. I want to avoid the step of having the user having to submit the form manually when entering the page. Can I somehow script the page so that it is automatically submitted when it is loaded? 

    It seems a lot of e-mail marketing platforms such as mailchimp use this kind of technology for their unsubscribe links in their e-mails. When I click unsubscribe I do not manually have to submit any form on the landing page. They do have a second form that ask for the reason for unsubscribing, but that is a new form and the original unsubscribe is already sent.

    You could use something like our Global counter widget:

    And set the timer to 1 second.  The form would submit itself immediately after 1 second.  This is the easiest way to do what you are looking for.
