It is possible to pre-fill a form from the web or mobile interface, you just have to choose to make the field pre-fillable in the form. In the "Advanced Options" of the field, check the box to make it pre-fillable. So make sure you select every time the field to have this box appear.
Then in the submissions table view, click on "Pre-fill" button (in the banner above the table). This option is only available for users, with access as "web contributor" ("web reader" only will not allow prefill).
When you click on the "Prefill" button, the list of pre-fillable fields are displayed in the window.
To define one or more values in the fields of the list, click on the "Modify" button.
After entering the default values of the desired fields, click on the "Save" button.
To view the result of the prefill, create a new submission. All the fields with a value resulting from prefill action, will be displayed directly.
The location of the "Prefill" button on Android or IOS is in the left-side menu.
Whether on Android or IOS, the process remains the same :
- First, define the fields in the "Prefill" function that you want to pre-fill in the new submissions.
- Following this, when creating a submission, the values of the fields entered in the prefill will then be automatically filled.
Warning: the data entered for the prefill disappears if you disconnect the user from the application. It is therefore not recommended for example on a mobile that has several users. Instead, you should use a list.
