Let's say I wanted to set the focus on a specific input field so the cursor is placed inside it without having to click into it, is that possible?

Hi Jose -
If you mean set focus on interface load, then according to current functionality, the way to do this would be to make the desired field the highest/leftmost field on the form. From there a user can hit the TAB key on the keyboard to move the cursor to the next field and SHIFT+TAB to move the cursor to the previous field.
Do you have a use case in which a user doesn't start entering data in the first field?
Thanks. I was looking for a way to programatically do that
Robert Shankin Hi Rob, do you know if there is any programmatic way in doing so? For example, if you have a link to Add Comment and when clicking on it, a paragraph field shows up. How can we make it so that the user can start typing right away without having to first click on the paragraph field?
Hi Erick -
I don't believe this is in the product today.
