I am creating a form for our website that I will need external users to fill out. I want to minimize user input error so I have created a table with state names/abbreviations to link to the form. When they start to fill out the state it populates options they can pick, but is there a way to make this look better by eliminaing showing where the data is going (it shows 'Leads' the table where it is going and I don't want customers to see that). Or is there a way to easily upload the state abbreviations that I have in the table without manually entering them all as a single select drop down option?

Last question, I love the look of the interface form but from what I can tell this is not something you can share with outside airtable users via our website? Other than having them creative an airtable login, is this correct?

Ah, forms don't show the extra data, so you don't have to worry about that.  Try opening the form itself and looking at it
Here's my table:

Ah, users without Airtable accounts can access Interface forms fine; it's an option when sharing them

Hi Lou,  you can easily copy all of the state abbreviations to a single select field since this will be static data.  Then I would use an automation that updates your linked record when the single select changes.

Mine shows every option greyed out except for "only users with base access". Is this something I can change with a setting?

Appreciate your help!

Hm, if I were you I'd look into workspace / account permissions and such?
