Prepopulate a form by clicking a link on another pageAsked by skinnytrans on October 23, 2016 at 08:55 AM
I have a small website and I use Jotform to take the orders for running business. What I would like to see work (but cannot figure it out), that on the same site from a different page clicking a link (which includes a date) prepopulates my form's date section (Clicking on "2016.12.12" on the page leads to my order page and prepopulate my form's date section.
Any advice would be appreciated.
My webpage with the embedded form: http://skinnytrans.ie/order_En.html
My webpage with the link: http://skinnytrans.ie/prices_En.html
(bottom section called Collection dates, currently simply links to the order page)
Thank you in advance,
That's possible through URL parameters.
Here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters
The text in blue are the field names from your form
The text in red are the field values you want to prepopulate
The text in orange are the separators
Take note, since you have enabled autofill feature in your form, prepopulated values will be overridden by the autofill values saved on the local browser.
Let us know if you need further assistance. Regards!
Thanks very much! Finally I got it working. You're great!
