Is there any way using the signup forms to send information we already know to the form. For instance, I might know the user's name or email address if they are signed into our site. So for signups I would like to be able to put:

Anyone know if this is possible without using the API?

If there is a way to do it, it's nowhere to be found in the documentation.

You should be able to copy the form and host it yourself, though. Then you can easily fill in the fields and make it look however you want. Just make sure to point the form action attribute to the signup URL.

Hi there -- If I'm following you correctly, it sounds like you want to prepopulate some of the fields on your sign-up form.

There isn't a way to do that using our forms, but you may have luck using a thirdy party form, which you could connect to your Emma account using our open API.

@Blastro Thanks, that's an idea.

@Emily What I thought, but thought I would ask just in case.
