    Please provide more details about your inquiry so that we can assist you better. The thread is only titled as "query string". If you wish to populate fields, it is possible. Here's a helpful guide: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Thanks Jan -- for your quick response on this one. Sorry, for some stupid
    reasons I thought that's a search field and realized only after it posted.
    Yes, I did see that link and that solves my issue.
    Since you email I do have a quick question. This is how query string is
    passed to JotForm:
    ?x=10&y=20&lock=6d2efc914e42ec1eb8594273407ee9f039d72be5
    Where lock is secure hash of the query string params and I need to validate
    params x and y are not tampered before posting. Is there any way we could
    that kind of validation?

    Please let me know. Thx.
