    pre populate form

    Asked by mijot on May 26, 2016 at 05:42 PM

    I have this test form I'm playing with: http://form.jotform.ca/form/60885639075266.
    I need the form to "remember" the selection for the subsequent submissions.
    I'm trying to pre-populate the form from the thank you page using the field variables like so:

    <form action="http://form.jotform.ca/form/60885639075266?meetingName={meetingName}"><input type="submit" value="Start Over" /></form>

    It's not working and I'm not sure how to pass the value to the form on next load.
    Is this possible?

    btw, the form is embedded.

    If I understand you correctly you would like to create a edit button, so the user can go back and edit the form from the THANK YOU page.

    I  found a similar thread that may help you.


    In my colleagues sample, he uses a link and then styles it using CSS code to make it look like a button.

    Please let us know if this helps or you require more assistance.
