Populating a Field Description

With Live Population, you can use merge tags to show the values of other fields in a field description.

  1. In the form editor, open the field whose description you want to add merge tags to.
  2. Click the Live Population tab.
  3. Select the Allow merge tags to be replaced in field properties checkbox.
  4. Select the Replace Merge Tags In Field Description checkbox.

    (Optional) If you want the merge tags to be updated when another field changes, select the field(s) in the Replace Merge Tags When Field Is Changed drop down.

  5. Click the General tab.
  6. Enter in your merge tags in the Description setting.

    Tip You can add a merge tag using only the field ID: {:2} instead of {My Field:2}
