Hello! How do I have pre-filled data which will remain constant for each request UNLESS the requestor wishes to change something, for example -
[click to edit]
This will allow our customer for one less step to fill in the same address details each time. I currently used the TEXT option however we are not able to see this when the form has been submitted to us.
Please advise.Page URL:

If you are trying to pre-fill some of the fields in your form, here is our guide on how to do so:
This application will create the URL for you if you would like:

So I used the application to create the URL for me.

^^ Is that the link that I will send to the customers to fill out?

Correct, that is the URL pre-fills those specific fields. When your customers open that link, the fields will contain the appropriate data.

Great thanks so much - this was super helpful.
Now another question for you. I don't know if this requires a new thread or not. IF I want to prepopulate fields based on a dropdown option, how do I do that?
For example, If someone picks PA then the address/phone number and name will auto populate to a Philadelphia Address whereas if they pick FL then that information will switch to FL address.

For that, you would use the "Update a form field value" condition":
Though the guide is a bit outdated, the gist of it should be the same.
