Is it possible to create a hidden field with a number that the creator of the form can set?

    I have a text element that is filled with data drawn from other elements as a summary of the form results. I have a column for hours, cost per hour and then a total cost. I have filled the hours column with results from other answers, and I know how to calculate the total cost using a form calculation widget, but rather than entering the cost per hour in multiple places, i would like to set the cost per hour as the outcome from an element that i can reference using {number} (or something along those lines) (in the event that I want to change the cost per hour for future form submissions).

    Is it possible to have a number element (hidden) that I can enter a number into before publishing?

    Yes, that's possible. Just add the hidden field in your form and use URL parameter to fill the hidden field.

    Example: In your form, let's assume the Client Name is the hidden field. So the URL is

    clientName is the field name (should replace this with your hidden field after)

    123412 is the value which you can change to anything you want
