Zoho CRM Field


The Zoho CRM field is a lookup field that helps you fetch data from a Zoho CRM module and prefill your form fields. Prefilling forms with data simplifies the form filling experience for your respondents and saves time. You can also push form entries to Related Lists associated with existing records or update existing records in Zoho CRM using this field.

    Note: Set the required field to look up as mandatory or as a unique field in Zoho CRM to view it in the list of fields to look up while configuring the Zoho CRM field.

    For example, if your respondents search for a particular Zoho CRM record using a unique key, such as Last Name (as configured above), when the record is found, the mapped values in the Zoho CRM field setup will be auto-filled into the form fields.
