    Hi mariabubly,

    You may be referring to the Hidden Field. The Hidden box or field is not seen but submitted with the form nonetheless. It is used primarily by the website creator to track where the submissions are coming from. For example, you own website1.com and website2.com. And each has a form that your visitors can use to contact you. If you want to track where the visitor's feedback came from (either website1 or website2), you can use the hidden field to assign this variable (i.e. website1 or website2). 

    Hope this information was able to shed light on your question  about the hidden box. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!
