    We allow populating the form by URL parameters. 

    https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    For example, if you are sending the form via email, you can use this method to merge data. Like this:

    https://www.jotform.com/62696327226967?name[first]={MERGE1}&name[last]={MERGE2} 

     

    I'm not sure how you'll pull the data and merge in the form through MUSE, is it through their member's profile? If Muse allows you to use merge tags or similar for populating a system, then you should be able to achieve this in the form.

    I mean that when I, as a user, is confronted with a form (in Safari say) and I hover over the name field, I am asked if I want to autofill the form. I want to provide the users of my website the same functionality.

    Hello robert472,

    The autofill feature which uses information from your browser to the fields on a form is actually set on the browser itself and not on the settings of the form. You can learn more about the browser's autofill from different website guides such as this: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001377.htm 

    There is an autofill feature on the form but it's not the same as what I believe you are trying to achieve. The form's autofill feature is actually a method of saving information on the fields so when the user leaves and gets back to the form later on to continue with the form, the fields previously filled will load again. Here's a guide to the said form autofill: https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature 

    Please let us know if you have questions.

    Thanks.
