    I know it's possible to "hide" a box, but can radio buttons or calendar boxes or just plain information boxes be hidden by assigning them to administrators.  That way administrators could see the "hidden" objects and edit them... the person who fills out the form could not.

    Thanks

    Hello Dave,

    This can be made possible by inserting a hidden field in your form and using conditions to show the objects that you want hidden such as checkboxes when the hidden field is given a value.

    Watch this short video to learn more.

    Let me know if you run into any problems while creating such a form.

    Hi, Neil,

    I must say that is a convoluted way to do it, as opposed to clicking a button and making it an "admin" function... but by golly it worked like a charm.  Figured out that if I created "Hidden" I could hide one item and by clicking "Hidden2" I could hide another.

    Thanks so much for your response and the video.  Awesome.
