    prepopulating the confirm email field

    Asked by abbdhanani on December 18, 2015 at 03:27 PM



    I have prepopulated my form using URL parameters.  However, I want to be able to prepopulate the Confirm Email field.


    I cannot figure it out, I've tried using Chrome's inspect element and also the prepopulation App, both unsuccessfully.


    Any advice?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The confirm email field can not be prepopulated, since it does not have the "name" attribute, which is used to populate a field, this is due to the purpose of the field is force the user to enter and confirm the email address.

    If you would like to assign a value via URL, you should get the Full Source Code, add the name attribute to the field and then you will be able to prepoluate it.

    Hope this helps.

    Feel free to contact us anytime if you need more help.
