    How to use $_POST into JotForm, from an other form on the website (prob. with calendar)

    Asked by Fred on May 08, 2012 at 10:28 AM

    Hi,

    One of my customers want a small form on the front page that is actually the begining of his quote request form (jotform) that is on his own page. So when we click next on the front page we land on the jotform form page with some fields already filed using PHP; $_POST.


    I have no problem using $_POST for simple text field but I can't find a way to do it with the calendar.

    If I set "Default Time" to off, there nothing in the field even with _POST method.
    And if set to ON, it looks like default time overwrite the _POST value.

     

    Anyone know how to do this ? or where I need to look at ??   I am on this for hours now.

     

    Thank you.
