Hello, I am wondering how you can prefill a form where the field type is “Checkbox”.
For instance, I have a Contact Info form I send new clients. I have two Checkbox fields that I do not want them to see but would be helpful for me to be checked. When checked, mark the client as being an Active Account and an Active Contact.
Example Prefilled Form URL
Client Contact Info Form???&prefill_Act.%20Con.=???&prefill_Account%20Name=Client%20Name&prefill_CSM=First%20Last&prefill_ST=UT&prefill_Acc.%20Exec.=First%20Last&prefill_Account%20Name%20Dropdown=Client%20Name
Thanks in advance!

You should be able to prefill with the number 1 or the word “true” or the word “checked”.
Note that Airtable doesn’t support submitting the values of hidden fields, so all of your fields would need to be displayed onscreen for your user to see.
Alternatively, the easier way of doing this would be to just use an Airtable automation to update the field values after the form is submitted.
Another option is to disguise the checkboxes. In the form, change the label for the checkbox to something like “Agree to terms and conditions”. Make the checkbox a required field. Then you do not have to even prefill the checkbox. The user will check it for your because it feels like a natural part of the form.
