    is there a way to show a specific field only when you edit the submission but not when you submit the firm the first time?

    the purpose is to give to the people more options when they click on the "edit submission" link received by email.

    Thank you.

    Hi there - Yes, that's possible by adding a Get Form Page URL widget on your form and then create a condition that will only show a specific field when the page URL contains the word "edit". Please refer to the visual guide below. Notice that the field named "Sample field" does not show when you fill out the form.


    And when you edit the submission, the hidden field shows.


    Here's my demo form: Feel free to clone it on your account to inspect it.
