    I can't seem to find the labels for the fields I want to hide. How do I find the names of the fields I wish to hide please?


    Of all the fields, I only want the customer to see about 8 of them in the preview before submission.

    Also, is there a way to display a summary of the order on the page, instead of customers having to click a button to see it?

    It is possible to create a summary right away by using the field tags in the Text element.

    Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/481-Provide-a-Detailed-Summary-to-Your-Respondents-Using-Form-Fields and follow the first method (A. How to Insert Form Fields to Text Fields).

    Regarding the Preview Before Submit, if you still want to keep it, just copy the actual field label into the Hidden Fields box in the widget settings to exclude them.

    Example:

    Thank you for your help, I'm about 95% there with this! I prefer to use the text box, instead of the preview before submit.

    Using the text box method, when I preview the form it shows the total price of the order, however it doesn't show what products were actually selected, even though I used the field label {input41}, which I believe should show the selected products. Can this be rectified?

    Hi,

    I tried creating an order summary before submission using a paragraph field and I'm getting the same thing as well, it displays the total amount only. I tried using the strip method that is used for email alerts https://www.jotform.com/help/231-How-to-Strip-Payment-Labels-and-Separate-Payment-Info-on-Email-Alerts, but it doesn't work. 

    I have created a separate thread for that issue. I'll be escalating that to our back-end developers, you may refer to this thread for any updates https://www.jotform.com/answers/2360110

    In the meantime, you can use the preview before submission widget.

    Thank you.
