Is there a way to create a link to a form with pre-filled information? 

For example, I want a button in an interface that can go to a form to add a bug linked to whatever the user was looking at in the interface, so that the link is already set when opening the form.

Yeap, here's Airtable's documentation: https://support.airtable.com/docs/prefilling-a-form-via-encoded-url

And I've put together an example for you as well, and here's an example of a prefilled form link for an Interface form that'll link to the Feature the user was looking at:

Yeap, set the button to open a URL from a field in the record and use a formula field where you've set up the prefilled form link

Thanks! What does the link formatting look like? Is there documentation of that anywhere?
