Populate form elements with CMS collection data

It would be nice to be able to populate form elements (select, radio, checkboxes) with content from a CMS Collection.

For the ability to send form data to the CMS, see this idea: https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-663

    There are some scriptable ways to do this that will serve until Webflow adds this kind of capability. My Webflow Util library specifically started with the feature of databinding a SELECT to a Collection List.

    The documentation needs some work, but I've begun assembling a docs site for the utility libraries.

    My use case: Need a select field that is populated with CMS items, in my case students. I want the tutor to be able to update the student's time.

    Also the ability to populate select inputs in forms based on the options in the CMS.

    We need to be able to populate redirect page straight from CMS.

    You can do this by adding a hidden form field with a HTML embed.

    Simple add an embed within the form and paste the below code;

    <input type=“text” style=“display: none” name="slug" value="{{wf {&quot;path&quot;:&quot;slug&quot;,&quot;type&quot;:&quot;PlainText&quot;\} }}">

    This will add a hidden section to the form called slug which will return the url slug of the collection page that the form was submitted on.


    You can also set it to return different CMS fields such as a product name or category.
    Add as many hidden fields as you like in the embed by copy/pasting this code and modifying the name and value.

    This needs to exist. Perfect example use case is a client of mine that would rather have an 'enquire now' form for each of her artworks rather than the option of buying online. We currently can't set dynamic form names in the product template so we don't know which artwork the User is enquiring about without adding a dropdown asking the user to select the artwork they're currently viewing.
