Record submitted by Contact - Adding additional Contact Fields

I want the ability to add multiple lookup fields to a custom webform for record creation. I need the ability to have a "submitted by option" and also add an additional contact field "Job Title" so I can see which contact and which job title has created the record. The lookup should be auto-populated with the information from the contact.


I am able to obtain the 'Submitted By' information but unable to get the second field to populate (Job Title).  


What am I doing wrong???  See Screenshots in file attached.

Hi, I just tested here, doing pretty much the same thing as you did as this worked fine.


Have you cleared the cache? 


As another option, you can create a classic Workflow (real-time) and copy the information from the Contact to the custom table you have:


But entity form metadata should work as well.. make sure you clear the cache and the column datatypes are compatible (for example both should be single line of text)
