    Hi there,

    I am in love with the "spreadsheet to form" widget. It is awesome!

    The only thing I find troublesome, is that it requires the user to "type" in the unique code. So, in order to work, it depends on the accuracy of the user.

    Unfortunately, my experience is: user> typing=typos=errors=frustration. Is there a way that I can dummy-proof the inputing of the unique code?

    Like, is it possible to pass (copy) the value from a previous dropdown into the unique code input field? (source code, script, magic, sheer will?)

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to pre-fill the widget with values inserted in another field. Basically, this happens due to the way how the widget has been developed and it's added to the form, using an iFrame. 

    We may forward this as feature request to our second level if you want, although we cannot provide an ETA or ensure this will be implemented, we  would keep you updated via this thread. 

    Let us know.
