    I want to be able to send a client a URL/web link requesting them to complete a jotform and I want to include my own customer ID in that URL that populates a hidden field in the form that they complete. Is this possible?

    The hidden box field, found under Power Tools section of the form builder, can do this job.

     

    The value prepopulated to this field via URL query strings or parameters will be saved together with the other information entered.

    For instructions on how to prepopulate JotForm fields, read this user guide:
