Can I set up a condition that autopopulates a field only after the form is submitted?

    I'm looking to hide certain fields when a client is filling out the form first - then, once it is submitted, I'd like the hidden fields to be displayed so that our staff can complete their own portion of the form.

    Since there are no user-specific view options, my thought was to create a hidden checkbox and base a condition on that checkbox to show/hide our staff-only fields, and this "trigger" checkbox could be checked only after the form is submitted.

    Is this (or anything like it) possible?

    I wanted to try an auto-pre-populate solution to send the clients responses into the staff's larger form, however I am using configurable lists and I'm seeing prepopulation is not possible in that case.

    Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Is your stuff editing the submissions and that's how they populate the rest of the form? If that's the case we have a widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_form_page_url that you can use in conditions since the widget holds the URL and you can set something like this:

    Since the URL will include word edit, you can create a condition like that. And then show/hide fields that you need.

    Could something like that work for you?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!
