I set prefill data for certain columns and created form for other fields. On entering form data, new row is created but these prefill records returned empty. I thought new row will contain prefill data regardless of how it is created.
I referred this for temp solution: Can I prefill a portion of a form?

Right now, the prefill will only work for fields that are included in the form. Hidden fields for forms is on our roadmap.

I’m currently using Cognito forms as a front end for data entry into Airtable which is super useful becuase Cognito allows hidden fields, and seriously powerful calculations. They also allow you to collect payment for form entries which is great because we’re using the form as an order form. The order is placed via the form, payment is collected, the data on the order flows into Airtable and out to our operations team. The connections are made via Zapier which is just a matter of field mapping.

Will this same approach work using Gravity Forms?

Hi there, I would need the very same solution. Thanks!

ditto… want this as well.

@Kasra I too am in desperate need of this… two years have elapsed since this reply. Is it still on the roadmap please?

Same as @Giles_Croft, this is the missing piece to make dynamic forms that are truly useful.
Please tell me it‘s coming soon…
Oct 23, 2018 09:58 AM
Yes. Me too… Useful update
Sep 11, 2019 07:25 AM
I desperately need this feature – it would eliminate the need for a lot of manual data cleanup and would save sooooo much time. Please add this!
Sep 12, 2019 12:10 PM
Is there any status on this? I’d love to use this as-well!
Dec 31, 2019 06:54 AM
Any updates on this issue… ?
Jan 14, 2020 11:23 AM
Very interested in this. Seems like it’s been on the roadmap for a few years.
Jan 18, 2020 01:07 PM
Me, and about 50 different people who I referred to Airtable desperately need this update. Is there any way to get the idea if it is still on the roadmap?
Jan 20, 2020 10:18 AM
Same! Please make this happen!
Feb 21, 2020 07:30 AM
Also would really love this feature :heart_eyes:

I would like this change too - PROVIDED: you can specify which fields can be populated through a form and remain hidden. Allowing any field to be populated whether or not it’s visible though a form would introduce a potential security vulnerability IMHO…

Hi @Bruce_Halliburton and others,
I suggest to use Jotform as I do. Benefits:

3 1/2 years later, and this feature still isn’t here :slightly_frowning_face:
