Is there a way to auto populate an attribute from the USER table into on create?

I have extended the user table to include and additional attribute (School)
I would like to add that attribute to an entity on create based on the logged in user.

Example: John is logged in and clicks CREATE the school attribute from the user table is automatically filled in the corresponding field in the edit screen.

Hi Thomas,

Please have a look at this example. It does exactly what you would like to achieve in the Request Editor screen.



Thanks for the speedy reply! I will take a look
