Actually I would like registered contacts to be able to fill out some custom fields in the easiest way possible. I was thinking of a "form" type link and here they can enter their contact id (to match the information with the corresponding contact) + additional information from custom fields. I don't want them to have to create an account to fill in the information, so we were thinking about using profiles, but I haven't found a way to do it.

We are using WordPress and we already have all the contacts created.

  • Have you had a look at Form Builder?

  • @Petednz-Fuzion Yes I did, but Form Builder only "Create" but not "Update" using a Contact ID. Jan 31, 2023 at 18:37

You can use Caldera forms to do or CiviCRM profiles. You can email the link to the contact with the contact id and checksum in the URL. This will auto-populate the details for the contact automatically.
