Prefill is a powerful tool that provides you with a seamless experience and a secure way of prepopulating your form with data. It allows you to fetch existing data from your forms, tables or third-party providers.
You can access Prefill in the Form Builder by going to the Publish tab and selecting Prefill on the left.
When setting up Jotform Prefill, you can choose from the following sources:
When choosing Manual Prefill, you must provide the data to your form fields to create the prefill URL. You can do that by clicking the Add a New Prefill button.
Clicking the Add a New Prefill button opens the form. Fill in the form fields, and click the Create button at the top. You can also click the Send Invitation button to send the Prefill URL to the user. Both buttons will save the URL.

With Form Prefill, you can fetch the existing data from the selected form to create the Prefill URLs. It will particularly fetch the data from the main submissions tables. If ever you want to fetch the data from the other tabs of the selected form, set up the Tables Prefill instead.
