I came up with a form in Caldera Forms that has some input fields like name, address and an field with name "amount". I'd like to prefill the name and address from civiCRM -- this works. But give the "amount" field a default value specified in Caldera Forms.

When I use the functionality to retrieve defaults for the input fields from civiCRM the "amount" field is also retrieved and filled with the empty string -- as there is no default value in civiCRM (I did not set any default in the form processor "retrieval of defaults" tab in section "set defaults").

What do I overlook here? how can I make the default of Caldera Forms the one to be used? I have to map the parameter %amount% to the input field "amount" as I want to pass the amount from the form to the form processor.

How can I omit the field "amount" from being filled with "" from form processor's "retrieve defaults" functionality?

not sure to understand your question but it's possible to use different amounts like here in production: https://ffmns.gestad.net/licence/. It has a complex setting but i think that using the contribution processor in Caldera gives you access to these options.
