    is it possible to pre-populate widget fields?

    Asked by photoguy123 on January 27, 2016 at 12:54 AM

    i was trying to pre-populate the 'from' and 'to' input fields in the GPS Directions widget, from values collected in a previous form. the intent would be that the thank you page would prefill this info, passed via URL so the customer could easily get driving directions without re-entry of information. i can't quite get that to work.

    populate widget and input fields information entry

    I have done same testings and it seems that it is not possible to pass values from GPS Directions widget from one form to another. Also it is not possible to prepopulate GPS Directions widget using prepopulate app: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/ 

    More about prepopulating fields you can find inside of this guide:

    Also on this thread my colleague explained how to pass value from one form to another form:
