The Static Value widget is used for inserting a static value into a widget. 

In other words, a user can select an attribute, and pre-set a value in the designer that will be inserted into this attribute. When user fills out a form that pre-set value would be set in CRM upon successful form submission. This widget uses a hidden input. 

For example, if a certain product is only allowed to be ordered as a single unit, the CRM Static Value widget could be used to automatically fill the quantity field to one.

Configuration

Basic

From the Portal Connector widget list, click and drag the Static Value widget into the body of your form. Click on the edit button to display the properties prompt.

The Static Value Field will fetch all of the attributes of the entity configured for the form. Selecting any of these attributes will provide you with the appropriate field(s) to set the value of the chosen attribute. 

Examples

Choosing an option-set field will provide you with a dropdown list containing the values for that attribute. 

Selecting a lookup field will provide you with a number of checkboxes, allowing you to specify if the widget should use the current logged-in users' contact id or parent-customer id.

Selecting a DateTime field will provide you with a DateTime picker.
