Pre-fill Forms based on a backend system event

Trigger your Create Form API call based on a backend system event. A backend system event refers to any change in state - like a submitted work order, or completed purchase. Using these events facilitates moving processes forward as their trigger happens.

Using a backend system event to pre-fill a Form functions much like using a webhook to trigger your process. But, instead of a webhook you’re using a backend system event to trigger the process.

When a Template is built in the GoFormz web app, ensure that there are hidden Form fields containing placeholders for ID values from the System of Record. These placeholders tell you which records in the third-party system are linked to the completed Form.

This allows the received data from Form data fields to be integrated to other systems downstream from GoFormz.
