I have a number of prepopulated links, some of which have a field filled with "#2 Fuel Oil (Diesel)." In the links that have the '#' symbol, that field and the prepopulated ones that follow all show up as blank, but in the other links without '#' all the fields work. I think the special character is messing up the links - is there a special code I can replace it with that will allow the links to work properly?
I've included a sample link.

You can use this link as a reference for the special characters: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp.
For the "#", the URL encode to avoid stripping it would be %23
Here's an example: https://form.jotform.com/52805047761961?special=%232%20Fuel%20Oil%20(Diesel).
It will prepopulate the text box the value "#2 Fuel Oil (Diesel)."
Do let us know if that helps.
