Trying to send form to second party for completion

    I seem to be missing something that I can't figure out. I have read the responses to others. The application has a hidden field for the advisor's recommendation. When a student fills in a grant application, s/he gets a thank you for submission and an email is sent to the advisor that shows the link to the student's application. When I test, I see the recommendation field, can add text and submit.  I get the entire application and it looks great.  However, when I actually put another email address in for the advisor (my husbands as a test), he gets the email, sees the link and can access the form but the recommendation field is not visible; he sees only the field completed by the student.  Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?  Everything else looks great!

    You are welcome to look at the form on my jotform account.  It is TravelGrant_SC17. 

    Thank you

    That is because the hidden field(s) will only appear for the form owner, and when the session is still active in the browser. Other people won't see it.

    A workaround would be to add a password protected section for the advisor. Like, add a textbox that will serve as the password area. Show the other fields when this textbox is filled with the correct keys.

    Check this demo form: Enter 1234 in the Advisor Key textbox.
