Am I understanding correctly that we can no longer dump a string into a data field, as an "initial value"? Seems the “initial value” data property is no longer available, and the only way to get a string into this field is to put it in a calculation. Is this the new model? (See image below)

I’m not suggesting that this is a bad thing or necessarily causes an issue (I assume that mandating this solves a different issue that I don't understand), but it does change the way that I normally build solutions, and it would be helpful to understand the thinking around this architecture.

Subsequently, I need a better way to define large, multi-line strings, and my knowledge of JavaScript is dangerous enough to have created some very messy code, and I was wondering if you knew of a more elegant way to do things? Currently, I need to either escape each line of my string in order to make it fit into a script, or I need to join 1000 lines which is a little unreadable.

In my final solution, the string will be prefilled by a TM service, but during the build-phase, it's important for me to have this data defined in-form.

      Hi Sacha,

      Ensure that the 'Include in Submission Data' checkbox is selected and you will be able to add an initial data value.

       

      Cheers
