Video shows Fake being able to fill out a form, but where does the data for the form come from?

Can i have a .csv, .xls or any kind of xlm feed data to the form?

Or do i have to enter the form data manually the first time and Fake just enters the "same" data everywhere. Can i have it enter different data based on an external file and its rows and columns?

One way to do this is by text file. Txt file has one line for each value i'm going to pass

Then I have the actions:
Repeat with, variable names line, in lines in file, txt file
Do Javascript - var line = fake.get('line'); var row = line.split(','); fake.set('url',row[0]);
Load URL
Set Value of HTML Element, with id, input the element name, to ${line} - this sets the element value to the txt file value
Click HTML Element, with ID, submit
Delay for 1 second
End Repeat

In this case I have a search page and I'm passing in a new value each time, pausing it for a second and then going onto the next entry from the text file
