How to autofill form fields using your browser?

The autofill option is a handy tool to save some time from manually refilling the same information for different forms. If you’re a form visitor or you have created a form of your own, the autofill option is always useful. You can save predefined values on your browser for form fields such as name, email, address, country, phone and so on. However, different browsers have different settings. Follow these easy steps on how to autofill form fields from your browser:

Google Chrome


1. Go to Settings – AutofillAddresses and more

2. Turn on the Save and fill addressees option.

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer hasn’t got a feature to autofill other form fields besides the username and password. You’ll find the feature in Internet Options – Content tab- Autocomplete – Settings. Enable the autocomplete option for forms and press Ok.

Important: The autofill feature will be activated once you have typed the first letter of the data you have saved on your browser (e.g. the first letter of your first name).

    1. Hello Mark!

      Unfortunately, you cannot pass user input from one field to another on the same form. We do, however, have a feature request from one of our clients regarding this option. You’ll find the request here. You can vote this request as well as others that appear in our Feature Requests section, or you can create a new request if needed.

      To pass user input from one form to another form, follow our documentation on how to pass user input from one form to another.

      Thanks!
