I’m using forms for user research and I would like to segment answers from different customer groups, similar to how survey monkey allows you to create different links to the same survey and segment answers accordingly. In this case I want to create I want to create different forms with the same questions, but which have a hidden pre-filled field called “Origin”, prefilled with values like “Facebook”, “Internal” or “Newsletter”, so I can backtrack what kinds of answers come from which channel.

Being able to prefill fields that are hidden from the form would allow me do do this inside of Airtable rather than go to a more complicated tool like Survey Monkey.

Best,
Oli

I run a startup incubator associated with a university. I have members who are students, professors, and community members. I’d like to do different links (different forms) depending on the audience, but not ask them if they’re a student, professor, or otherwise on the form.

Please be sure to email support@airtable.com to request this much-needed feature! They don’t read the posts here.

In the meantime, this can only be accomplished with MiniExtensions (or other external form software):

Yes, this is so necessary in the case that a Form will create a new record which related to another record in different table.
If only I could add the related record’s id hidden in the form :slightly_frowning_face:

It is, in my opinion, the #1 biggest missing feature from forms.

Please be sure to send your request for this feature to support@airtable.com, so they know how important this is to you.

In the meantime, we can get this feature with MiniExtensions’ form:
