The data field selects the matching row from a filtered Data Source based on the dynamic filters specified, invisible to the user. This data can be referenced throughout the form and/or modified based on user input on data fields bound to it.
This is the name of the field that should be referenced in any form logic or API calls. Users will not see this name on the form.
Data names cannot contain spaces or any special characters other than an underscore and must begin with a letter. They are case-sensitive and must be referred to precisely whenever they are referenced.
The data source to be used in this field must be selected in this drop-down.
This will serve as the description of the hidden field for visual aid in the design window. It will not be seen by the end user since the field itself is invisible to the user on the form.
Validation & Behavior
This property is used to define a calculation/formula that will populate the field's value. Often this is used in conjunction with the "Read Only" property (see below) so that the field will calculate and display to the user without the possibility of manual edits. This article is recommended as a starting point for more reading on this.
The value entered in this property serves as the initial value of the field prior to manual input/selection. Please see this article for details on the relationship between Default Value and Dynamic Value.
Exclude from Export/Display
By default, every field is displayed on Form entries in the Data area, and is included in non-templated exports (e.g., generic pdf, CSV, spreadsheet, database connectors). Use this property to prevent this field from showing on all such display and exports.
