Automatically populating user information on a form can save you time and reduce errors. This ProTip shows you how to set up pre-populated fields to leverage CURRENT USER system data (available in every form). It is also a great way to create an audit trail of who has filled out the form.
To set a Text Box field to display Current User information, go to the Default Value section of the field and enter any of the following syntax:
This will display the current user’s first name.
This will display the current user’s last name.
This will display the current user’s User ID Email.
If you would like their full name to be grouped together within the same field simply link each section with &””&. See example below:
You now are ready to pre-populate your forms with Current User information. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team.
