    Hello iwbrb07,

    Clear hidden fields basically will clear the values when a field as soon as it gets hidden. So even before submission, it's already empty. This can be used when there are other conditions that require the field to have a different content. So with this option. The time that it becomes empty is upon the action of being hidden.

    When a Clear on Submit is selected, the hidden fields will be cleared upon submission. Only visible fields on the form shall pass the information for record.

    Don't clear simply means even though the field is hidden, when the form is submitted, it shall still submit the contents of a hidden field.

    If you have questions, please let us know.
