    How to make auto-fill forms in Jotform?

    Asked by PKGFOODANDCO on November 22, 2016 at 08:52 AM
    Hi,
    I wanted to know how to make my subscribers have an automatic filling on
    my form?
    They will often use our form, so the automatic filling's option is
    important to us.
    Best regards,

    Hello again Solène,

    We have an option for automatically filling of forms. You can set this option from "Preferences" button. Our user guide will tell you how to enable and disable auto fill on forms. 

    If you need further assistance, we'd love to support you. 

    Thank you!

    Regards.

    Hi again,
    I wanted to know how to make my subscribers have an automatic filling on
    my form?
    They will often use our form, so the automatic filling's option is
    important to us. But for example the name, number, adress is different
    from witch customer. How can they avoid completing each time their data
    (name, number, address) for this to be filled automatically?
    Best regards,
    Solène

    Hi again,
    When I create my form page on wordpress, I encounter an important problem.
    I can not go down the page, the scroll bar remains inactive. What is the
    solution ?
    Thanks, best regards

    I understand you would like to have selective prefilling in your form. Unfortunately, I don't think that it is possible to do that, but there is a workaround by using prepopulating URL. What I mean is you can give your users in Thank you page or/and in submission email a link that they can use later for filling your form again.

    Here is how you can make prepopulating URL: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    For example, I made this form that shows a URL on a Thank you page which you can use to fill the form again but with prepopulated name, email and phone number:

    https://form.jotform.com/63264185391964

    You can see on Thank you page this link: 

    https://form.jotform.com/63264185391964?name[first]={name:first}&name[last]={name:last}&email={email}&phoneNumber[area]={phoneNumber:area}&phoneNumber[phone]={phoneNumber:phone}

    And here is my form in action:

    You can insert that link in Email autoresponder as well.

    Please try or Clone it and let us know your thoughts.

    Thank you!
