    When I click on edit link in email to edit filled information on my form it breaks and shows filled hidden field on the form. And also it doesn't allow me to submit form again for review and throws an error enter valid email address.

    Please let me know what can be done to fix this.
    Really appreciate your help!

    You can use the Get Form Page URL widget and create a condition that will hide this field if there is an "edit" parameter in the URL. Please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/389-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-on-Edit-URL.

    Unfortunately, you cannot use multiple email addresses in the Email field. Here's a screen capture:

    But if it is a hidden field why its showing up on edit link it should always be hidden. When I first submit the form that time it allows me to send to multiple email address just break on edit link.

    Try editing the submission from an incognito/private browser tab.  If you edit submissions from an account that has access to the form, hidden fields and such are shown.  If you log out of your JotForm account or load the edit link from an incognito browser, the hidden fields should be hidden.
