I need to obtain the post_id of a post created by a form, in this case from the last entry submitted by the current user. I tried to do this by creating a hidden field with [post_id] as the default value. Then referencing it with
[frm-field-value field_id=x user_id=current]
where x is the id of the hidden field containing [post_id]. But it doesn't work: the [post_id] fields remain empty within the submitted entries, although the [post_id] shortcode works fine in the Views. This seems too simple to need coding. What is the intended way to do it?

Found the hook:https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_after_create_entry/#kb-save-the-id-of-created-post-in-a-field Though I'm curious why it isn't already implemented as a feature to process [post_id] and the such within the fields.
