Edit submission making hidden fields visible

    I am taking advantage of your 'edit form' option that can be provided to users on the autoresponder email.

    It's an excellent feature.

    However the form is not respecting the original form's design, particularly with respect to hidden and readonly fields.

    Since I use hidden and readonly fields to manage the calculations etc, this is not good.

    Can you/I do anything to fix this?

    Thanks

    I was also able to replicate your issue with hidden fields not being hidden and read-only fields not being read-only in edit mode.

    Escalating it to our developer team. You will be informed in this thread once the issue is fixed.


    Thanks for reporting us.

    Wow this is a show stopper for me, I use hide and read-only on calculated fields for total prices !!

    I analyzed this issue again and there seems to be no problem.

    The reason why you experienced this is that apparently it only occurs when you click edit submission link and open it in the browser while your JotForm account is logged in.

    I also experienced this problem with your form because of my account's privileges.

    I tested again on a normal account and my account and was able to identify the issue.

    If you open your form in another browser where your JotForm account is not logged in you won't experience this issue. Therefore your recipients will not experience the issue you have experienced.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.
