@douvega The impacted Data element is a CASCADING dropdown menu. I don't see an option for it to receive the parameter within the Caspio bridge. I am assuming that this will need a custom JS on windows. onload() to set the Dropdown value to the parameter.

Only regular drop-down form element can receive a parameter on a submission form. What is the purpose of assigning a parameter to a cascading element?

First, you may need to submit a parameter to your lookup table. Have a look at this post.

Since the nature of cascading element is to be filtered based on selection on parent dropdown,  we cannot have any other values rather than the ones system returns as it might not be one of the child values.  For instance if you have state (parent  )and city (cascading child).  Now if you receive Washington DC as city while you have California as state (parent field)  this combination is not accurate. and this is the reason system is now allowing to receive parameter on cascading element.
