This Product Ideas board is currently undergoing updates, but please continue to submit your ideas.
Right now these field (column) types are not supported for public form views. This would be a very handy feature and could eliminate the necessary of another software platform.
I am doing a task form and I want the form to be able to show the task description and the estimated hours when the task is selected. It seems silly to insist that forms only have input fields when there is often correlating data that you want to show when a selection is made. This is not crazy or obscure but actually pretty basic. I am somewhat frustrated that I can’t make these show without changing it away from a form. :::grumble:::grumble:::
Could you include the estimated hours in the description?
I am also waiting this possibility of including formula in a form for the following reason : as a physician teaching students I am promoting the use of clinical rules that often result in a calculated score that should be immediately visible to the user (otherwise it’s not worth it !!).
Any workaround ?
Any news from Airtable on this very much required feature of public forms being able to include calculated fields?
+1 for this feature request. We also have a long list of numbers for people to select from and it would be advantageous in our form to have a read-only view of the lookup that is a description of that number that they choose. We would use this as a ‘confidence builder’ for our staff to use to verify that they selected the correct number in the form.
Another +! for this feature request – also
use case: https://airtable.com/shrGV2lgvOCQlHiXE want users to apply for permit, and we are encouraging repeat business by t-shirt give away. Want return users to NOT have to type in Company name, address, etc. AND want new users to use this same input to add their company name, address etc. if not already in there.
other things i’ve noticed
We need forms that display all the field types.
Here’s another vote for this very important feature request. I have long text fields where I need the input limited to X number of characters. I added a LEN(string) formula to other columns and that works perfectly, but when entering text into those fields I need to see how many characters I am using. I can see that in expanded view, but not in the form view, which is the view I prefer to use.
I know it’s been over a year and half since this thread started. @Katherine_Duh do you know if this feature is planned to be added or on the road map?
I need this. The form user needs to view reference data in order to complete the form.
I’m also curious if this is something that’s in the works. :slightly_smiling_face: Thanks!
