    Unfortunately, we don't have such feature that can prepopulate field with data from an external source. You can use the prepopulate app to set a value via URL parameters.

    You can get the source codes perhaps to do it: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form. Add custom scripts that would allow you to do it in the source codes. Or, do it by API: http://api.jotform.com/docs/ (this requires technical API skills).
