Prefill Webform with QR Code

Hi all!

I've been playing around with webforms and data stored in QR codes for my company. What I've got is when I scan a QR code, it sends me to a Jotform survey that pre-fills fields from the QR code into the form fields.


For example, the data stored in my QR code looks like this: https://form.jotform.com/73095020256147?piece=0001884&job=750104

Where the piece is the Piece field on my form,which gets filled in with 0001884. Again, number 750104 gets filled into the Job field on my form.

I've tried doing the same thing with Smartsheet forms but using the input id (a numeric key) but my data isn't filling in. 

Any ideas?

    There currently isn't integration with QR codes and Smartsheet forms or with JotForm, but there are a couple of options for you to explore (in order from easiest to more difficult to set up):

    1. Zapier—a third-party automation tool that may be able to add JotForm entries to a sheet in Smartsheet. I'm seeing some "zaps" that do this for other applications, and Zapier is compatible with Smartsheet. Here are some of the JotForm zaps I found: https://zapier.com/zapbook/jotform/
    2. APIs—this takes development resources at your company, but JotForm and Smartsheet both have APIs. This means you can develop an integration between the two that best suits your needs. JotForm API. Smartsheet API.
