    Is it possibe to embed field data into Headings or Labels of another field?

    Asked by nickbh on September 06, 2015 at 10:40 AM

    What I am looking to do is something like:

     

    Enter Name: Nick

    Hi Nick Please answer the following questions.

     

    This is where Nick is a Text Input and the underlined statement is maybe a heading?

     

    I.e. can you embed a field within a label or Heading?  EG>

     

    HI {Name} Please answer the following questions.

     

    Thanks

    You can achieve this by using Smart Forms and using condition logic to Populate Field with Value from another field.

    I suggest your review also the user guide:

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.  Very Helpful.  But am I correct in assuming that this only works for the actual field.  You could not actually update a field label or a Heading?

    Thanks Nick

    That's right Nick. It will only work on the actual fields.

    If you want labels or heading that automatically update base on the field value, simply place the field variable e.g. {name} on the text element. This will be replaced with the actual value of the field.

    Example:
