    Hi,

    I did some testing and it does not look like it is possible to pre-populate the dynamic dropdown widget via the URL.  The field did not even show up in the app:

    Yes, I know.

    But, will it be done in the future?

    Widgets such as this likely won't be updated to allow for targeting them via the URL.  Most of them are loaded in an iFrame so they are outside the scope of what the URL can target.
