    How do I place a hidden index # to my form submissions?

    Asked by want2compete on February 03, 2014 at 09:36 PM

    In an old form, I have a form field that provides a hidden index # on form submissions (as a contract #) so I can keep track of my projects.  I can no longer find that option in creating a new form.

    The field has been moved. You can find it under the Widget Category by searching the keyword Hidden Box.

    Like so:



    Thank you.
