The answer is (I hope) 'yes' but I can't get it to work - see How to select a default event in webform where event is repeating I'm pretty sure the Views side is working as it generated a url that when clicked gave me the webform with the correct event selected (this is on a Views screen). But when I run the webform I get '- None -' displayed in the event list box. Yes, I have checked "Allow events to be autoloaded from URL checked." Code is at the latest level - I went back to Webform 7.4.9 and Webform 7.4.11 to see if there had been a regression but no change.
So now I'm wondering if this is a bug in Webform-CiviCRM?

  • What exactly is the url argument you are giving it?

  • The url in rewrite section of the global custom text field is node/27?event1=[id] Which doesn't square with the help in webform which shows 2 event ids (but that didn't work either). This is where I am registering all contacts for the same event, although there is only one contact in this case.

  • And is [id] one of the available events in the select field? It won't pick something that's not there.

  • Not sure what you mean, but I just clicked on the first of the listed events in the Views screen and it gave me this url dcm-admin.org.uk/node/25?event1=163 - this is the correct event. But when I run the webform it doesn't pick this or any event.

  • I mean, have you added a "select" field to the webform containing that event as one of the options?

I believe this has been implemented now so that there is a setting on the Event section of the webform's civicrm tab so that you can 'allow events to be autoloaded from URL'
