    Blank Fields Appear In Email When You Edit Submission

    Asked by psllcom on February 23, 2017 at 07:38 PM

    I have my notification and autoresponder emails setup so that blank fields are hidden. This feature works fine when someone submits the form, however, it does not work if we or the user edits the submission via the link at the bottom of the email.

    I've included an attachment to show this. The email on the left side is the original submission. The email on the right side is after the edit button was clicked at the bottom of the email and the submission was edited. You can see that once the form is edited the notification email no longer follows the "Hide Blank Fields" option.

    Any suggestions?

    Just wanted to see if there were any updates to this issue?

    Also, I had several issues with my Jotform account in the hours after I posted this original question. We have two forms that we actively use for our business and both experienced issues. Both forms stopped integrating their gathered data into our Google Sheets which caused pretty big issues for our company. We didn't realize this had happened until the day after and we had to do an hours worth of work or more to clean up the mess that was made. I'm assuming this is related to someone accessing our account and testing things? If that's the case then we'd ask that Jotform find another method for testing things because our business greatly depends on these forms for day to day operations (order placements, etc) and we cannot afford any downtime between 6am-Midnight Eastern Time. If someone wants to test between Midnight and 6am, that shouldn't be an issue so long as our forms are 100% operational at 6am.

    Hello psllcom,

    We're sorry for the inconveniences. Blank fields issue on edit submission emails is fixed. I've tested it with a clone of your form and it's working without any problems.
