Pre-fill a taskflow's fields

Important note

To share a direct link to a taskflow, embed it within your website or pre-fill the fields of the first form in your taskflow, the first level in the taskflow must contain at least one form task that is marked as published.

We assume that you have already published the first task.

General options

  1. In the Designer, after you’ve selected your existing taskflow, click the “Taskflow settings” button in the panel on the left. The Taskflow settings will appear.

The pre-filled link is the direct link (or permanent web address) to your taskflow and can be shared with other people. It is very useful if you want to fill fields automatically in the first task in your taskflow with specific information. E.g include a person’s email address, set a specific date or an event they’re registering for.

Copy&paste the pre-filled link and replace the field values in brackets (…) with the values you want to pre-fill the form with.

Example

You've designed a survey in Kotive that you want your 3,000 subscribers to fill in. Copy&paste the pre-filled link into your email newsletter software, and replace the `(Email)` field value with your mailing list software's merge or personalization tag to automatically include each recipient's email address in the link.

Important note

As a Maker you may want to run the taskflow for different organizations/teams. You would want the associated taskflow data to be uniquely linked with a specific organization/team although they all make use of the same designed taskflow. Therefore, the direct link must be unique for each organization/team. If you want to generate a new unique direct link, then repeat the above steps and choose a different organization/team.

Next: now that you have published a task and shared a pre-filled link to the taskflow, you can also embed the taskflow into a website.
