Display formula result in form


I have a column formula that grab a link from reference sheet and I need this to be displayed before submitting the form.

Example, column A is a drop down of items, each of these items can be downloaded from a shared link.

So in column B I added a formula to grab the link from referenced table.

However in the form I cannot add column formulas to display their content while filling the form which I need to display for the user.

Other solution could be to email the user upon submitting the form. But that also will not contain column B as its not part of the form.

Any idea would be appreciated.

    Hi @Ridac

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could have an automated Alert trigger when the form is submitted, which can also include the information from column b.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
