How to automate a cell in the smartsheet from the web form

Dear Smartsheet,

I would like to automate the name of the person whom submitted the web form into the corresponding smartsheet cell.

Is there a way to do that?

Eg. (see below screenshot)- Say the first person, Jacinto, is submitting the webform. Is there a way to remove this field but to submit the form automatically with his name. Etc. etc. for the rest names.

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,

    Hi @Andi Reisner

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to David's excellent advice/answer.

    If you set the form so that the submitter has to be logged in to Smartsheet to submit, you can use the System Column, Created by to get the submitter's information automatically.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
