    Hi,

    When trying to map the User ID to my Form, the form is showing the User ID number rather than the Username. It works fine when using the User ID, in this case – [766], within the naming of the PDF File, it gives the filename the Username. But on the form it is just giving the User Number

    Thanks

    Rich

    There are a couple of ways to accomplish this…
    1. Change the Field Map from [766] to “Formidable: Dynamic” and to the text box enter: [766 show=”user_login”] or any combination of other Formidable Form UserID shortcodes.

    2. Add a hidden field to the Formidable Form and enter [766 show=”user_login”] or any combination of other Formidable Form UserID shortcodes as the field’s default value. Then change the Field Map Layout to the hidden field.

    We remain at your service.

    Thanks,

    For option 1, the dynamic box is just mirroring the formula onto the PDF rather than giving results of the formula when trying [766 show=”user_login”] or other variations of this.

    I will try option 2 now but as it is changing the form it won’t enable my historic dataset to output to the form in the same way, not ideal but manageable
