    Can we use field {tags} within question labels?

    Asked by FeedbackForMe on February 23, 2016 at 03:10 PM

    Can questions have dynamic text?

    Can questions have dynamic text? I don't want fields to be pre-populated, but rather want "referrer" above to customized. If this can be done, how do I do it?

    Sure! I am going to be sending a form to a freelancer that has a list of questions for them to pick to which ones to use in a survey to their clients. The question may be "Would you refer [first name] for other projects?" I'd want "[first name]" to be the freelancer's first name so they can see exactly how it'll look when I send the question/form to their clients. Does that make more sense? I don't want to have to manually input the freelancer's name since this form will be used for many different people, perhaps simultaneously. They'll all be sent a link to this form via an email.

    This is only possible to use dynamic field {tags} within Text (HTML) fields at the moment.

    I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our developers to see if the {tags} can be used within labels.

    Unfortunately, we cannot provide any ETA for when it will be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates on this.

    Hi,

    This has now been implemented.  It is now possible to reference other fields in field labels.  Reference as so: {fieldname}.  You can find a field's name buy right clicking on the field and selecting "Edit Properties".

    Please let us know if you have any problems or questions.

    Regards,

    Nicholas
