     Hi, i would like to be able to set that ANYONE who clicks the 'edit this submission' link should be able to see all the hidden fields. the way i see it works now is that only when you are logged in as admin of the form, then it shows the hidden fields.

     

    i need this to work for anyone with the link since i have managers that need to be able to edit those hidden fields, without logging in.

    HERE'S THE WEIRD THING: This was actually working as we wanted it to. Last week, anyone with the 'edit this submission' url was able to see hidden fields. it suddenly stopped working in the last few days.

    i dont want to set it up with conditional logic since this will require another field to be filled out, and i dont want to add any more fields to the form.

    ive included url to the form below

     thanks

    May we know what fields are hidden and cannot be seen in the edit submission link?

    I checked the form and I can't seem to find any hidden fields.

    You can also provide us a screen shot on the fields,so that we can have a better look at it.
