Change drop down selection based on URL

  1. I'm trying to make a review submit form and instead of building separate form for each product I want to make one form with drop down to select purchased item and email customers link to this form. But I want to have their product already selected in drop down. Is there any way to do that in URL (get method) mysite.com/?myNumber=1&myFruit=orange ?

  2. Yes, you can pre-select a drop down via the query string.

    - Edit the drop down field
    - Select the Advanced tab
    - Check the "Allow field to be populated dynamically" checkbox
    - Give it a parameter name (parameter is what is used in the querystring, so if you wanted to pass myFruit=orange to the form the parameter name you would use would be myFruit)
    - Save your form

    Now when you link to the page containing the form if you pass that parameter name to it in the query string and give it a value equal to one of the drop down choices, it will be pre-selected.

    Please note parameters are case sensitive. So if you use myFruit it won't accept myfruit.
