I’m having trouble prefill-ing a “checkbox” field.
I’ve followed the guide on the support forum (I’m not allowed to link it here for some reason)
and everything works, except for my checkbox field. I’ve tried “1” “true” “checked” (which is stored in the table/grid view tied to this form). None of these work. What is the proper value to pass in URL parameter to have this field “checked” on load?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I’m not sure what I was doing wrong when I posted this question, and would have swore I tried the provided, but I guess I didn’t (or code silently changed since?)
Anyway, your answer is working perfectly for me today. Now I can prefill that checkbox and stop clicking it manually. (It was such a minor inconvenience I put the issue on the back burner)
Unfortunately, Airtable does not allow autofilling of hidden fields, and Airtable also won’t submit the value of any hidden fields, either.
In my opinion, this is a MAJOR limitation of Airtable.
I would suggest emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to ask them to please add this as a feature. I’ve asked them multiple times, but I don’t know how many other people are clamoring for this.
