What is a Dynamic URL?
Use a Dynamic URL link to prefill Online Form automation. With an Online Form, your initial landing page or preview window will pop up for recipients to fill out fields such as their first name, last name, and email address. However, if you’ve collected this information on your website, you can pass those parameters using dynamic URLs. When opening the Online Form, signers will not need to enter their duplicate information again.

A maximum of two(2) custom fields can be added with the dynamic URL that does not show on the form but used as metadata for the folder. Custom fields are passed back with the folder information via the webhook response each time. You can add any custom field and value information in this format:
- Use ‘&’ as a separator for all parameters.
- Use ‘%20’ or ‘+’ as a space in the value. If you are unsure how to code your field name correctly, use an encode/decode tool
- For checkboxes and radio buttons, pass values such as true/false.
- If you are having trouble getting field names, right-click on the field then click ‘inspect’ to inspect the element.
