Accessing Fields and Meta Fields

Updated 1 month ago by Nandini

While writing expressions Kissflow allows users to access the values of other fields in the current form context. This can be achieved by just referring the field’s id on your expression.

We will provide the following meta fields that can be accessed in the form apart from the fields defined in the form for every item.
