Can I Auto-Populate or Auto-Fill a Canvas Form?

You can auto-populate any Canvas app with data from a reference file.  For example, let's say you enter a part name into an order form. Canvas can automatically populate the price of that part in the Price field.  You could upload a file (CSV format) with one column listing the names of your parts.  The second column would list the price for each of those parts. 

Or, you could select one of your customer names from a value list (drop-down) in Canvas and then in subsequent fields you could automatically fill in the Address, Phone Number, Email Address, and Customer ID Number based on data provided in a reference file. 

To do this, upload a reference file to Canvas by clicking on My Account and then click on Manage Reference Data.  You can add as many files as you wish.
