    You may want to do more research on this, but if you want to auto fill the fields with what is already known about the contact, there seems to be a 'Prefill' option. When you are editing a form, go to the 'Embed' tab at the top, and then click the 'Embed Code' button at the bottom. Options fly out from the side and there is a 'Show Prefilled' box you can check. I believe this edits the embed code that you can then copy onto your site or should be copied into an Act-on landing page.

    Hello Everyone,

    We are creating forms using the dynamic fields. Instead of known fields disappearing and being replaced with another form field of non-known user info, is there a way to just have the known fields auto-populate?

    They way we have these types of forms setup is if all the fields become known, their essentially will be just the form submit button.

    Also, if there are any good examples or resources in terms of using this feature, would love to see them.

    Thank you everyone,

    Eric Brende

    I hope we talk about the labs form. You got the dynamic section. Fields in this section will disappear if they are known. And you got prefill: if known the field(s) will be prefill with known data .

    Put fields like email, first name and last name outside the dynamic section. They will prefilled and not disappear.. Put the other fields in the dynamic section. The prefill option you find under the tab embed.

    Does this help?
