    I have a form that requires a supervisor's approval. I would like for the person completing the form to not see the approval/denial field  - only the supervisor.

     

    I have set it up to trigger an email to a supervisor based on which department they choose. I have added text in that email for the supervisor to read, asking them to approve or deny the request, and have added an edit link. 

    How can I hide that field until the supervisor goes into the form to approve or deny it? 

    I am trying to prevent the people filling out the form from "cheating" and approving the request themselves. 

     here is a link tot he form: https://form.jotformpro.com/62906269707970

    It seems you've figured this out using condition and an access code field.

    In addition, to make it a bit secure, you may want to show only the  "Manager Access Code" field in edit mode.

    Guide:

    So in your condition, you can add:

    If Get Form Page URL widget Contains "edit", Show Manager Access Code field
