Prefill is Jotform’s new powerful tool in the form builder that provides you a seamless experience and secure way of prepopulating your form with data. Previously, you could only prepopulate forms with URL parameters, which is a complex, exhausting way of creating a URL for end-users.
Jotform Prefill solves the hassle. You can set it up to fetch existing data from your form and tables or third-party providers. That opens many possibilities in your form, especially with handling, connecting, and processing user data.
When setting up Jotform Prefill, you can choose from the following sources:
So, how does this work?
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.
