Auto-fill based on unique id

Hi,

RT 3.4

Is it possible to automatically fill-in a customer’s information some
how in RT? Maybe via a scrip? That is, create various custom fields,
and customer has a unique id, and based on that id all relevant data
will be populated: i.e. phone number, name, etc.

Thanks,
Ron

HI,

You probably don’t want to use a scrip, it’s after the fact (although it
would work, you just wouldn’t see it until you submit). You may wish to
consider adding some javascript or the like to the form to do your
directory (LDAP or whatever you are using) lookup for the information.

I have not failed. I have just I don’t know the secret to success,
found 10,000 ways that don’t work. but the secret to failure is
trying to please everybody.
