How to append Username to Entry

    I have a form setup, which works perfectly, but I would like to append the logged in user to the entry, so I can easily determine who sent it.

    Any assistance appreciated.

    I believe I have this figured out.

    I used a hidden field with merge tag username.

    I just want to make sure this is 'proper'; ideal or is there a better way.

  3. The logged in user is already captured in the entry. It may not be listed in the list of entries by default, but you can edit those columns to display it there if you want. It's also available on the single entry view.

    There's no reason to do what you have done with the hidden field, but it's not hurting anything.

    Thanks Chris.
    I was unaware of Edit Columns item, until now.

    This is much better.
