    Where is the old "hidden field" that was in Power Tools

    Asked by twistarscamp on December 17, 2013 at 06:39 PM


    Is there still a way to place a hidden field from the Power Tools section without having to set up criteria and passcodes to accomplish this?


    I only want this field to be visible when logged into Jotform on the back end for my administrative purposes so I can update a record once it is "processed" in our system.

    I cannot find it either. The Power Tools section where this was seems to be gone. I need it as well.

    The Power Tools menu has been replaced with Widgets. Enter "hidden" in the search box and the Hidden Box widget will appear:

    If you would like assistance with anything else, we'd be glad to help.
