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

Sweeet! Very gratifying to see a wish fulfilled.
Users can still technically see the field and the value, but the page looks much nicer this way

We have built a form that integrates with Airtable and it also provides support for prefilling hidden fields.

You do not need to create separate for each platform. You just need to adjust the prefill URL on each platform accordingly.
