    Can I make the URL criteria override the cookie data?

    Asked by aspirebrokers on April 06, 2016 at 07:13 PM

    Hi Guys,

    If I have URL parameters such as ?whatsUp202=Refinance and this populates the 'whatsUp202' field.  However if the user is returning then this data is replaced by whatever the cookie data holds.  This wouldn't usually be a problem but if two people fill out the form form the same computer then hidden fields will always show the cookie data instead of what has been passed from the URL.  Is there a way to make the URL details take priority?

    You may disable the autofill feature:
