    Hello,

    On form 52745887899988 I have setup some conditions to hide fields when the Post-Approval Date is entered. Is it possible to hide the form Reset button at the same time?

    Thank you, Robert

    Thank you for contacting us. Yes this is possible but will need a workaround to achieve this. First what we will do is create two submission buttons. one will have the reset the other will not have the reset button.

    Then we will use conditional logic to display any of this forms by checking if the Approval Date has been filled or not. The condition will load a specific submit button.

    I have cloned your form and implemented the conditions above. Kindly test it and feel free to clone and use it.

    Below is a guide on using conditional Logic.

    Hello again,

    I'm running into a bit of a snag with this. When testing it works just fine. When I try it again the form shows it has been filled already. I tried clearing the browser cache but that didn't clear it so I can't try it again. Interesting enough all the date fields have no dates showing. Why are there no dates and if there are none why is it showing as the Post-Approved Date is filled? What am I missing? My concern is that a user may run into the same thing and have no idea what to do.

    For now I am going to disable the condition to hide the reset.

    Any ideas Guys and Gals ?

    Thank you, Robert

    Hello Robert,

    You have on your form the continue forms later setting enabled.

    15099070402017-11-06_0236.png

    This setting allows your form which you have previously filled to be saved in your browser. What you will need to remove here on your browser are the cookies. After which, it should clear your form's fields. Or making a submission will also destroy the cookies for the form's fields.

    Thanks.

    OK.. GOT_IT... I presume this has no effect on the EDIT function of the form, right! That is why I had left it Enabled thinking it had to be for editing.

    Thank you, Robert

    Hi, I'm still waiting on confirmation on my last post. 

    * The "Edit Submission" option still functions with continue forms later "Disabled"

    Best, Robert
