    Create text/html with dynamic values possible to pre-fill

    Asked by nhpnl on September 23, 2014 at 09:56 AM
    Third (formdesk has this option): The option to make text/hmtl with dynamic values, between brackets for example, and pre fill those with paramters.  I asked about this yesterday in the forum and they told me it is not possible with fields who have no id.

    I like this option because you can for example put logo in your form of an bank/product and fill the right logo by passing the source as parameter. Example: You can put plain text element above your form with the text: "product: [product_name]" In the url you say ...?product_name=product 1. When you look at the form then it will say "product: product 1". Or with html tags

    Have you tried the Pre-populate app? It sounds close to what you're looking for.


    You can't create fields based upon it, but you can fill in values. It's possible to set up a form with conditions, such that if field A=1 then show field 1. If field A=2 then show field 2. Thus it could effectively create a form that has different options and values based upon a query string.

    Let us know if that will work for your needs. I don't anticipate us allowing users to create fields directly from the URL. It's not a highly requested feature, and allowable URL lengths would limit its utility.
