    I'd like to take a URL parameter and pass it to a question label. For instance, I'd like to use the link

    and have a question label like:

    How is the weather in {state}?

    This does not appear to work. Is there a way to do this?

    The guide has to do with prepopulating answers. Instead, I want to fill in question label text with URL parameters.

    You can only pass a value in the input field via the URL and not on the form label. A workaround is to pass a value to the input field first and then you can bind it in a form label or text field using the {Unique Name}.

    Please check this demo form:


    You can find the Unique Name of a field in the Properties > Advanced tab.


    After that, you can now use the {Unique Name} in the form labels or texts field and in the URL. If you want to hide a field, then just right click it and then select the "Hide" option.

    This works. I put in a hidden text field and then flowed its value through to the label. Thank you.
