Hi!

I created a prefilled form link but somehow it’s not populating the field. I created other similar ones and those are working though. Help!

Working: Form

Not working: Form

I would use @kuovonne’s Prefilled Forms App to help you troubleshoot what’s wrong with your URL:

Also, note that your prefill option for a linked record field has to exactly match a pre-existing record in the linked record table.

Welcome to the Airtable community!

Your prefill is not working because you have multiple records with the same value in the primary field. In this situation, Airtable cannot tell which of the four records you want to link to, so it does not link to any of them.

Solution 1: Change your primary field values so that every record is unique.

Solution 2: Prefill using the record id of the desired record, instead of the primary field value.
