Hi, I'm working on making an app for author's. I have a dropdown box to select the book in the top left corner. So, when they select that book, all characters with that in their book ID stay visible and those that don't are hidden. What I'm wondering is, is there a way to autofill the book ID when creating a new record? Below is my location list. The far right field is what I use to hide the records. So, all records that don't have Book 1 in that field are hidden. My question is, is there a way to fill that field automatically with the corresponding choice in the dropdown when you make a new record. So, if the dropdown is set to book 1, when I create a new record I want it to fill the field with book one. Does that make sense? If you can think of a way to accomplish that, please let me know and if it doesn't make sense let me know and I'll elaborate. Thank you in advance for your time and help!
