    Min 3 chars needed for a field name to use with prepopulate the value in URL?

    Asked by zorik on November 14, 2014 at 04:57 PM



    I'm building a form that receive a parameter from URl, I need that parameter name will be one character only (I'm sending the link in SMS and I want it to be short).

    When I'm trying the name of the param to be one letter or two letters - it's not working, only if the parameter is 3 characters long it's working (the name now is pll, in the second field)

    Do you aware of such limitation? What can I do if I need the parameter name to be only 1 char long.

    At the time of his last post, my colleague submitted a ticket on the issue. That ticket is currently assigned to a developer and it has been given a priority level of Important. Like Kiran, I'm unable to estimate when a fix will be found but we will be sure to update you on any resolution of the problem.
