Can a picklist value be suppressed on a form?

Is there a way to suppress a picklist value on a form? 🧐

We want to internally be able to select a value in a field (drop-down single select) on a record, but we do not want the users that completes the form to see or be able to select that picklist value.


thanks much -

    Hi @[email protected]

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Yes, you can set a default value and hide the field on the form or use the URL Query feature to set the value automatically in the URL (you can still hide it in the form).

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • Thanks for your time Andre - I understand your solution, but for our use case I'm not sure that will work.

    We want to have the field on the form and let the users select any drop-down value but one. We want to add records ourselves using that one particular drop down value. It's a mgmt assigned value and should not be available to the form users.

    We use that field as a basis to categorize our work on dashboards.

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks again -

    Happy to help!

    Unfortunately, that's not possible without using an add-on or 3rd party service.

    One way could be to use the Premium add-on, Data Shuttle.

    Is that an option?
