    Asked by barryblizzard on January 26, 2017 at 05:50 AM

    I have a hidden field which I am using to verify the form source when sending data to php via Thank You.


    I do not wish it to appear on the emails sent out. Can I do this ?

    To hide these fields, please go to your form's preferences and select "Clear on Submit" option. 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 the record.

    Also, you can delete the hidden field/s from your notification and auto responder layout.

    I hope these help.

    If you need further assistance, please let me know.

    Thank you.

    Kindest Regards.

    Is this possible with custom notification templates?

    There is no formal custom Notification template but you can customize the notification as per your wish using the formatting toolbar above the notification content area.

    Hope this helps.
