Steps - Add a Hidden field

1. Request Developer assistance to create special script.


"Developer Notes: In general, your hidden control’s name is cmsForms_theNameYouGaveIt or cmsFormS_theNameYouGaveIt. The latter says, use it on the Subject line.

To prepopulate your control (and *any* control can be pre-populated, not just hidden controls), you put the internal control name (prepend cmsForms_) onto the query string. The format is:
cmsForms_YourControlName=YourValue
(to make things easier on yourself, just don’t use spaces or odd characters – yes, it can be done, but you have to encode them correctly).

If you have only one control you want to pre-populate, then it is:
…YourPage.htm?cmsForms_YourControlName=YourValue

If you have multiple controls you want to pre-populate, then it is:
…YourPage.htm?cmsForms_YourControlName=YourValue&cmsForms_YourOtherControl=YourOtherValue"
 

2. Determine what information needs to be passed and not display for user to see.
3. Determine 3rd party who will be receiving this hidden information
