    Saving Content ID's from PreValueSources into Content fields

    Hi all,

    I currently have the following in place:

    • Umbraco v7.12.4 and Umbraco Forms v7.0.4
    • Prevalue source populated from the all profile content nodes, using "Umbraco Docs from xpath"
    • A drop down list, which uses the prevalues to populate the drop down list
    • Workflow: Upon submit a content node is created using the values entered into the form.

    I was wondering if there is a way I can use the corresponding ID's in the PreValue sources to populate the content node created. Instead of using the Prevalue Value (eg NodeName).

    I would like to show the Prevalue value (NodeName) in the dropdown list, but upon submit the ID of the content node the prevalue is taken from is added to a field in the content node produced.

    I was wondering if this is achievable in Umbraco Forms, and if so how this could be achieved.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Karl, I know this is an old question... But I wonder if using the "Umbraco Documents" prevalue type would provide an ID rather than the nodename?
