    Hello Jotform

    I understand the basics of the Edit Link and letting visitors come back to edit a form.

    We want to prevent them from editing a couple of critical fields.

    I know that I can use the conditional logic to see if the URL of the page contains "edit," which tells us they are in edit mode. But how do I make those two fields not-editable when the person is in edit mode?

    Thank you!

    Hi there,

    You can hide or disable those critical fields if the URL page contains the word "edit" using a condition. This will prevent them from editing important fields.

    Here's a sample condition.
