    Do you mean to populate employee data from any other source by entering the employee id? If so, unfortunately, it is not possible at this moment to read data from external sources. If you want to display the data on the form fields by entering employee id without using any external data source, you may consider using conditions. Please take a look at the following guide that can help you with this.
