Why say it at all? Isn't it evident when one looks at the forms?

Please don't add to the trouble by making up yet another term, please,
please, please. Anyway, there is no difference in the meaning of these
two terms, in the way you are using them. No matter when it's done,
it's done.


What about the word "prepopulate" (or would it be "pre-populate")?

We have user entry forms that sometimes display values in some fields
when the user accesses the form, for example. There are also data
tables that contain data before the user accesses them. Some of our
reviewers like to say that these items are prepopulated.
