  • 1.  Pre-populate Data

    Posted 06-13-2024 02:08


    Is it possible to autofill inputs in the registration process? If so, can it be done by populating data with URL parameters, or what is the best practice?

    Daniel, from my experience, it depends on the field, your settings on your event, and where the question is positioned in the Registration Path.  I have uploaded Company Names & Divisions with success by having them on listed on a page AFTER the Identification Confirmation Page.  For this first page I only ask First, Last, Email.  I have the setting toggled on the Registration Path as Yes: auto fill the registrant's information if they arrive from a public weblink.  Once the system connects their name and email in a Contact Record, (when they click on Next to go to your second page of the Path) then the information populates downline. Depending upon what you are wanting to import, you may need to create a Custom Contact Field - like Division.  I've entered the data in the Contact Records by import, or you can include the fields on your Invitation List upload if you are using that feature.  Note: There are some Contact Fields that will not pre-populate the data due to security reasons, like SSN, stored CC's and I think Passport Number.  Standard things like address, title, and so on do.
