    How can I enable a field on a jot form

    Asked by nsaracini on March 17, 2017 at 04:32 PM

    A form that we have had created for years is suddenly making a date field disabled, and therefore it is not showing up when the email gets generated. How do i enable a field.

    I have cloned your form, and the unique name of that date field called "Vacation Start Date" is the following "vacationstartDISABLEDDISABLEDDISABLED", please change it to "vacationstart", example:

    Then delete your notification, and create it again: https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-Up-Email-Notifications 

    All form fields should be properly updated in the new notification. Let us know if you need more help.
