    How to add currency sign on the input field without using input masking?

    Asked by Ashlee on March 06, 2017 at 06:27 PM


    I want to make a field in the form automatically place a "$"in front of the numbers a user is able to input but I don't want to put a limit on the numbers they can enter, as I don't know what dollar amount they will input. Is this possible?

    This is a re-post of a comment on Getting Started with the Basics of Input Masking

    You can use the form calculation widget instead. You can put a prefix $ sign into the input box + the input field.



    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I missed to mention that we actually do have a widget that does this already.

    Please check Masked Input widget here https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/masked_input

    This worked perfectly! Thank you!

    I have one more question,

    is it possible to hide fields from showing on the email that gets sent after a form has been submitted?

    I have a field in my form that says "Add Another Account" Yes or No, that is a field I don't need to see the answer for in the email that is sent to me upon the users submission. 

    Is there a way to remove that? Thanks!
