    Progress bar not recognising Only Required Fields

    Asked by harlows on March 14, 2017 at 07:02 PM

    I have the progress bar widget installed on my form, but despite having "Only Required Fields" set to "Yes" the widget is counting all fields not just those set as required.

    Hi,

    You can add the fields to be ignored so that it won't counted in the Progress bar widget.

     

    Please have a try and let us know if you need further assistance.
    Regards.

    Thanks Christian, but unfortunately my fields are duplicated and I discovered that adding a field name ignores both instances. It would be better if you could add the unique field name (in advanced properties).

    That could be a good idea, however, it is not available at the moment.  Field labels are only accepted in the Form Fields to be Ignored, so I would suggest, to try editing the not required fields, for example, Acceptance 1 or whatever label you would like to add just not to be the same with the labels of the required fields.

    Regards.
