Populating a Field Placeholder

With Live Population, you can use merge tags to set a field’s placeholder to the value of other fields.

  1. In the form editor, open the field whose placeholder you want to populate.
  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 Placeholder 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 Appearance tab.
  6. Enter in your merge tags in the Placeholder setting.

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