I would like to pass a parameter into my form which automatically populates one of the fields with that value. How can I do this?


If you'd like to send respondents a form with some fields already filled in, Google Forms makes it easy. Here's how to pre-populate form answer fields:

  1. While working on your form, click the Responses menu, then select Get pre-filled URL.
  2. Fill in any answer fields you'd like to pre-populate.
  3. Click Submit.
  4. To send the pre-populated form to respondents, use the URL provided.

You should be able to dynamically tweak the values in the URL provided.

  • Hi Gadget, thanks for your answer, however this deals with pre-populating static content. Instead, I would like to populate dynamic content from a parameter. – Resorath Mar 26 '15 at 16:25

    Ahhh ok. Is the form publicly available? Are you able to provide a link to the form? – Gadget Mar 26 '15 at 16:35
