  • Hi cal_bonjovi,

    From your descrition, you need to add the Title parameter from URL to the Title textbox in the NewForm.aspx, we can use JavaScript to do this follow this step:

    1. Type this URL in IE. http://servername/site/Lists/ListsName/NewForm.aspx?pageview=shared&toolpaneview=2
    2. Add Content Editor Web Part below the New Item Form Web Part.
    3. Add following script into the source editor of the Content Editor Web Part.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var URL= String(window.location.href);

    Note: Please replace the Element ID with yours, and we can use IE F12 Developer tools to get the textbox ID of Title field.


    Thanks & Regards,
