    E.G IF I PUT EMPLOYEE NUMBER IS IT POSSIBLE TO POPULATE EMPLOYEE NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS AND SALES REGION. RIGHT NOW I HAVE TO INSERT MULTIPLE CONDITIONAL LOGICS TO GET IT DONE. IS THERE ANY EASIER WAY? BECAUSE FOR 50 EMPLOYEES I WILL HAVE TO MAKE 150 ENTRIES TO POPULATE 3 FIELDS

    Unfortunately, your requirement is not possible to achieve in jotform. You will need to input all the data that you will populate into the form. However, there are a couple workarounds I could suggest.

    To fulfill your requirement, you may need to hire a programmer and ask them to create a custom program using server side programming like PHP to create an interface/connection to pull data from a database of your employees and input them into the form fields. To add custom code, you will need to use the full source code of your form.

    Another possible alternative would be to use the Import Data app. With this app, you can directly fill your form submissions with data from an external data source such as a CSV file or Excel format. So, from your own database, you can export the employee data from there into CSV for example, then use this App to import it into the form submission without having to fill in the form for each employee.
