    Can you have a hidden field that holds a specific value?

    Asked by sydneyswimmers on February 24, 2015 at 09:43 PM

    I want a field in my form that is hidden but holds a specific value so that value will become the Group when I integrate the form with MailChimp.

    Hello Paul

    It is possible to have a hidden field with a specific value. If you want it to be a fixed value you can add a text-box field > add a default value > hide the field:

    If you wish a hidden field with a unique ID you can use the Unique ID widget:


    This number will auto-increment.
