Enable Advanced mode to view the data name of the widget. This is the value you will need to configure the widget properly, when creating a workflow.

3. How to use it

Follow one of the options below depending on your use case.

3.1. Task integration

When creating a workflow with our Task integration, you can send information from one form to another. You will use the Read Only-widget in the second form of the workflow. 

Ensure the data name of the Read-only widget matches the data name of the widget in the first form. This way, you prevent users from modifying the data during task completion.

Note: The Read-only Text-widget does not support Subform, Catalogue, Search, Drawing, Photo, Signature and File-widgets.

3.2. Create a Task via API

It’s also possible to fill out the Read Only-widget via the API when creating a Task. Find out more in our Developer docs

3.3. Prefill fields via Rules

Whenever you need a value based on a condition which should not be adjusted by the user, you can use the Read Only-widget in combination with Rules.

Select the first widget as a Condition and the Read-only as the Action.
