Can you Pre-Populate data in a linked form

  • 1.  Can you Pre-Populate data in a linked form

    I basically want to use the API_GenAddRecordForm call, but for a form that is not the default add record form for a table. The call allows you to pre-set the values of fields in the opened form, which I have found very useful. I want to use a formula url or something similar to link to a form, but with a field pre-set. 

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks.

    You can add a &dfid=10 parameter to API_GenAddRecordForm to use a particular form

    So you can! I didn't see anything about that in the API documentation, but it works like a charm. Thanks a lot.
