php & podio webforms

Hey,

I´m sorry, but my php skills and API experience is quite poor - but can I use a php value to fill a podio webform?

I get the values via url by using ?name=name&... It would be great if I could use this values into a podio webform. Impossible? or do you have any ideas?

Big thanks :)

No, we don't support prefilling of webforms via querystrings, but we will at some point. You're not the first one to request that.

However, you can do your own regular html form, prefill it with any values you'd like, and then submit the values via the Podio API. That requires a bit a programming work, though.

Also, I would love to see the Email to Webform configuration screen allow you to set defaults for all fields for the incoming email... thanks...

Any update on the possibility of populating webform fields using querystring parameters?

Hi Shawn,

We haven't implemented anything yet, but it's still on our "we want to do this" list for webforms. The best way to handle prefilled forms at the moment is to bypass Podio webforms, create your own HTML form and use our API to submit into a Podio app.

All the best,

Andreas

I'm working on a "Podio Advanced Form" class in PHP at the moment for one of our projects.

The class support subforms (i.e. create a new entry based on app reference field), default values, hidden fields and a lot more.

It's not complete yet but enough to give a demo.

Well, I couldn't help but test how far Podio guys were on this. And it's actually already implemented

In our job section we use podio and we have a dropdown of different jobs to apply for.

Adding ?[FIELDID from formelement]=[VALUE]

The job "Front-end Developer - Aarhus" is then preselected by the Querystring parameter.

Haven't tried with other form elements.

Googling "podio webform query parameters" (without quotes) brought me here. I'd like to see this implemented as well. I could update my WordPress plugin ( http://wordpress.org/plugins/podio-webforms/ ) once this is implemented. One use for it would be to have values in fields but hide them with CSS (not ideal way of hiding but it would be usable).

I tried what Simon did and didn't get any positive results.
Is there a way to link a Webform to an existing Item to update it instead of inserting a new one?
