Smartsheet Form Fields (HTML)

While I like that Smartsheet has forms to collect information from users, they are very limited in how data is collected, as well as limited in visual design options.

With Google forms, I can create a form, view it in a Web browser, and then identify the actual form fields in the HTML and use those same field codes in my own HTML form. This way, I can have complete control over how the form looks and how data is collected (e.g., forcing data to be entered a certain way).

When I view a form I created in Smartsheet, then go to View Page Source, I see random characters---nothing that looks like form HTML code. As a result, I have no idea how to identify form field information. When I know the form and field names, I can use those in my own HTML form, and still use Smartsheet to collect the data. For example:


<input type="text" name="firstname">

<input type="text" name="lastname">


Anyone try to create their own HTML forms but use the Smartsheet form behind the scenes, so data entered in the HTML form I create ends up in Smartsheet?
