    Why does "Edit Submission" show and allow changing of hidden/read only fields

    Asked by steves2002 on July 25, 2017 at 02:33 AM

    I Have created a form that has calcs based on hidden values, however if you use the "EDIT SUBMISSION" field, the submitter can see and change these values, which in turn changes the calculated fields.


    This is not good!

    A solution I could recommend is adding a condition on your form to disable fields when an edit link appears. Just get the Get form page URL widget on your form.

    Then set a condition that if there is an "/edit/"on the URL, disable some fields:
