I'm sure this is fairly basic question, so I appreciate somebody helping me out on this.
I have a WebApp/Landing Page that stores submitted information in a Table (table1) upon submit. I would like to auto-load recipient data using the preloading action and populate the form fields. For example the form asks for user input on field "table1.firstName". I would like to auto load recipient.firstName into that field. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?
After some more digging I was able to solve the issue. The solution was to check "Load additional data" in the Preloading action and add all the data I would like to prefill. Then in the Alias column, type the value of the "datadata-nl-xpath=" part of your form field. In this case, mine was table1.firstName. See screen shot below.
In order to pre-load the data in the form fields on the landing page, we have pre-loading activity using which you may achieve this. Check the screenshot below :

Thank you for the reply. I have read the link you posted and I am still not able to accomplish my goal. The issue is I want to populate data from the recipient table into a field that will not be writing to the recipient table.
EX - When somebody fills this form it writes to table1. But I would like to prefill the recipient/firstName into the field asking for table1/firstName.
I hope my examples and terminology are correct. If you need more information please let me know.
