New to Hidden Fields? Check out this guide on adding Hidden Fields to your form.

Here, we want to know whether our form respondents are logged into our site when they answer the form. So, we’ll add “login” as a Hidden Field. 

Be sure to add all the Hidden Fields you want to pass from your website's URL to your form.

5. Now, when we embed the form in our site, any Hidden Fields in our form that correspond to parameters in our URL will be passed automatically to our form.

In our example, if the user is logged in to our site, the parameter in the URL is “?login=true”, whereas if the user isn't logged in, it’s “?login=false”.
