How to auto-populate a cell based on the form from which the record was created

Did you mean: 

I would like to have multiple forms feed one table. I would also need to know for each record, what was the form used to get that info. Is that possible?

ex: my table is about social content. I can either myself create a record with the info and specify myself what content type it is. But for some content type (ex: promoting something from an external partner), I might need to send a form to someone so that they fill it for me with some info. I would then need the “content type” cell to automatically populate to “external promotion”.

Hey! The best way to do this with Airtable forms is as follows:

Create a form, and limit the options to the form you are populating to.

Here’s an example base, and example of Form 1, below it

Hope that helps!
