    Browser & Device Info - Is Separate Field Required?

    Asked by markashton on August 06, 2013 at 05:22 AM


    I have been adding my own hidden field for Device & Browser Info ...  but I have noticed under the general settings of a hidden field it has an option send browser info.

    So do I actually need to add a seperate field or just activate that setting on an existing hidden field

    Thanks Mark

    You do not need to create a separate field for the browser info but I would suggest that you create an extra hidden field first with the browser info activated and test if it meets your requirement. The information you will get from it will be similar below.
