    If Fields A and B are hidden on a form, the following scenario is happening:

    Person X fills out and submits the form.

    Person X sees a thank you page with an "edit form" link (as is programed through JotForm's Thank You page settings). OR Person X gets an auto-email in their inbox, which contains an edit submission link.

    When Person X clicks on this link and opens up the form, now all fields (including hidden fields like A and B) are now visible and live on the form.

    I think this is a bug. Please help!

    All fields are intended to show on edit mode, even if they are hidden. However, you could create a condition to hide those fields on edit mode if you want to, please see this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/389-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-on-Edit-URL
