Prefill selections on an Email Preference Center form

Hello all,

 

We are setting up an email preference center and I had a question regarding the form. We'd like to set up the form so that when someone revisits the form after subscribing, it will prefill the selections they provided in the original form fill. 

 

Say someone fills out the form, but wants to make changes later on. Is there a way to offer up their previous selections to make updates?

Yes, this is known officially as “Pre-Fill.“  (There are tons of threads about it.) Are you using a Marketo LP for your Preference Center, or embedding a Marketo form on your own site?

Hi Sanford, it's a Marketo landing page.

 

We have the form pre-filled for opt-in option and want to make the person choose to opt-out.

 

Where we're getting stuck, is offering up the person's choices if they return to the page and want to make changes.

You’ll need to use my custom Pre-Fill JS (used by hundreds of instances btw). Search past posts and you’ll see lots of links.
