    Adding a value to a field

    Asked by koenprikken on March 09, 2016 at 07:41 AM


    One of my customers is using an asterisk open source telephony switching platform. They are using a plug in on chrome to launch a jotform by using the specific url. (example https://form.jotformeu.com/53414053514345)

    This url can have several id's such as incoming telephone number, agent id, etc...

    Is there a way to have this information loaded in one of the form fields. 

    Thanks for your help


    Kind regards

    If I understand you correctly, you would like to pre-populate a field so that once the user open your form, there is already a pre-filled data on it.

    You can actually pre-populate a field using the URL parameters. Please check this guide: Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    Our developers also created an app that helps you prepopulate a fields easily. Please visit this JotForm App: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
