In D7 Webform Civicrm integration, under Additional Options for Civi configuration there is this link

To have this form auto-filled for anonymous users, enable the "Existing Contact" field for Contact 1 and send the following link from CiviMail: https://site.nubay.net/sample-webform?cid1={contact.contact_id}&{contact.checksum}

I do not see the equivalent link for D8 Webforms. Would it be the same link? Should it be in the additional options section?

1 Answer 1


It works just the same!



  • or in other words, yes appending the tokens to the webform url and sending that link from civi will provide a login for cid=1, ie add ?cid1={contact.contact_id}&{contact.checksum} (assuming it is contact 1 you are trying to prefill)
