    OK.. I'm not 100% sure that it's called a value.. but the stuff that looks like {clientId} -- Am I able to decide I want it to be called {client} -- and custom change it so that I can consistantly keep send out same links add-ons to prepopulate similar forms

    Hi Mendy

    I'm afraid that's not currently possible. Those tags are automatically generated by our system and cannot be changed. Although it's true that changing the label of the field from Client ID to Client will change the first part of the tag from "clientId" to "client", one cannot guarantee that the tag will be {client}. It may well be {client5} or {client163} for that matter.

    If you need clarification on this or need to know about something else related to your forms, please let us know. The team will be happy to assist you.
