Allow a dropdown field to be hidden within webform with a pre-selected entry
Allow the ability to select a default for a dropdown field within the webform instead of selecting the default at the field creation/manage level. We have the same field across multiple forms and the default needs to be different for many forms
Thanks so much for reaching out on the Ideas forum. Fortunately what you're looking to do is already possible.
If you drag a field (of any type) on to your Webform, however over and click on where it says "Optional Field". Change this to "Hidden Field", and then set whatever value you'd like. You can check a checkbox, set a date field to 'today', select an item in a menu, or even fill in a text box with anything you want. The subscribers will not see any mention of the field (or it's answer) on your form, and the value will automatically populate for each submission.
Give it a try and let me know if this gives you what you're looking for. Our Support Department can also help if you run into any technical questions. For now I'm going to close this ticket, but it can easily be re-opened if you add another comment.
Thanks Hannah, and have a great afternoon!
