Populate Form Properties with Hubdb tables

SOLVE

I think it would be a good option to be able to create custom coded properties that could be added in the drag and drop form builder.

 

For instance I have a hubdb table of open positions in my site and I'm creating a form for people to send their resumes. I would like them to select from a drop down which position they are applying to. 

 

Now I need to add/remove the new position to the hubdb and manually update the property to add/remove it from the form.

 

The idea is that the selector autopopulates if a change is made to my table.

If you check out the Forms API documentation but, provided it's a HubSpot site (or the tracking code is installed on the site) and the form is set to pass a cookie it should still show track the submission.

Hey Mariana! So, in a nutshell, a CRM contact property field that pulls in the job positions that have been added to HubDB?

 

I'd recommend posting this in the Ideas forum and also in the #ideas channel on the HubSpot Developers Slack (if you haven't already, check out the developer resources here).

 

However, as a workaround to the issue at the moment, perhaps you could use a text field on HubSpot for the position and custom code a form on your page with the drop-down options that then submits the chosen position as text through the API (or just pull in the relevant position from somewhere on that position's page).

 

I hope this helps!
