We've got a basic template (actually a few), which has a substantial number of fields, most of which we prepopulate with the user details we've got from their signup on our site.
Occasionally we want to be able to fill in some of those fields for them, so we can direct them to a partially completed form. As far as I can see user-completed fields aren't accessible programatically and 'me (when sending)' fields are greyed out for the user. So it seems as though to be able to prepare forms without knowing in advance what info we'll have been able to fill in for the user, we'd need to create multiple templates, with a template for likely combination of programmatically and user-created fields, if that makes sense.
So eg in a simple case where we had user_name and user_email fields, we might have Template_A where user_email is set to 'me (when sending)', and user_email is set to 'user', and Template_B where both are set to 'me (when sending). This could proliferate if we had to deal with multiple scenarios.
a) did that make sense?
b) if so, is there a better way of doing it?
c) if yes to b, is it possible to do via the Ruby SDK, which we're using?
