    How can I hide empty fields? I have a form with hidden fields which only activate when needed, however, all the field headings show in the RSS Report even if the answer is empty. I have set the 'hide empty fields' on the submissions page.

    Unfortunately, the hide empty fields feature does not work for form reports. If you need to hide a field in all submissions for your report, you need to deselect it in the Edit Report wizard:

    I noticed that the notification email has the option to strip out empty fields so have solved this by sending a notification email to notifier.in which returns it as a RSS feed. A bonus is that I can change the table on the notification email to change the way the RSS appears. If the same functions can be added to Jotform's RSS Report I would prefer to switch back to using that.

    I have forwarded this to our back-end team, if this gets implemented in the future, you will be notified via this thread.
