Prefill with field name instead of display value?

My team and I are having so much fun setting n8n automations with our Baserow database. We really love it :slight_smile:
We are currently facing a weird behavior with the form prefill feature (we generate the prefill URL in a n8n workflow).
When creating a form in Baserow, it is possible to display a different name than the field to set. For instance, we can choose to display “enter your name” to fill the field name.
However, it looks like the prefill field name in the URL must be the displayed name (and not the field name) meaning something like ?prefill_enter+your+name=james. Is there a way to prefill with the field name?
Webhooks contain the name fields and not the displayed so we are stuck in the n8n workflow.
We have just move to the 1.19 version from the 1.13 and we didnt have this behavior in 1.13.
