Is there a way to have a form field pre-populated so a user can just accept it and submit the form? An example would be a text field with a letter to a politician about some issue. It would be a good way to get people to write, like a form letter, with allowance for changes before submitting. Thanks.

Yes. Make a text field and place the test you want in it... Then go to the properties of that field and change the Field Options setting to Read Only.

If you set it to read only they won't be able to edit it, but doing what SirAGE suggests is the way to go, just don't set it to read only and it should work fine for editing.

Is there any way to delete the amount of visitors to a form to zero so I can see how many times that form is used per month?

Try republishing your form to S-drive.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

I may be tiered or just not reading this correctly, but I can not see what your question or problem is. Can you please clarify?

If your doing a manual export of your form, the form builder will name the folder myformname_exported. Take all the contents of this folder and move it to the same directory of the page that has your form script inserted in it.:)

No custom php files are allowed on S-Drive at this time. Best thing to do is to suggest it in the suggestion forum.:)
