1.4 Select the Separator field.
1.5 Update your label.

1.7 Click Source.
1.8 Enter your input HTML. Do not use the name attribute as this will error out when OpenWater reads it. When done click Source again to save.
1.9 Close out of the pop up.
1.10 Add a CSS class to all the participating fields you want to populate. When done click Save Form and then Close.

2.6 Update your CSS Class names with matching ones on your submission form.
2.7 Click Save and Back when done.
Step 3: Download & Run Ngrok and Test

3.5 Back in your theme in OpenWaterupdate the window.ApiBaseUrl should be updated with the correct forwarding URL from Ngrok. When done click Save and Back.
3.6 Get your Direct to Program URL and test your submission form. Below is our test working properly and showing that when the drop down has a selection it auto populates our fields.
