    Hi, was wondering if anyone had any experience prefilling a
    contact record or lead record form with URL Parameters?  Up to 6.7.X we were able to easily pass
    parameters in a URL string to create a lead or contact record, for example:

     sugarcrmurl.com/index.php?module=Leads&action=EditView&full_form=true&emailAddressWidget=1&last_name=Smith&first_name=Bill&Leads0emailAddress0=bsmith@mail.net

     

    In 7.X we have not figured out how to do this with the new
    framework - 

    sugarcrmurl.com/#Leads/create 



    We have tried a few things but
    nothing has worked. 

     

    Looking to see if anybody has any ideas on how to do this?
