cant seem to find the answer searching.  Hoping to have a hidden field that identifies mobile or pc, or at least what browser.  Is this possible?

Yes, it's possible. The PHP $_SERVER global variable can be used as a default value in a hidden field. https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/using-dynamic-default-values-in-fields/#kb-server-values

Thanks for that answer. I have looked through that link and some of the further links on that page but cannot find an example that would show mobile vs desktop. I am not particularly familiar with this stuff though so could have missed it. 

if you can provide any additional guidance that would be great. 

thanks

Here’s a working example. You want $_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’]: https://tryphp.w3schools.com/showphp.php?filename=demo_global_server
