    Asked on August 20, 2014 at 06:14 AM

    We're looking to use jotform to get a small foodbank charity with 6 client centres re-order stock from a central warehouse, all run by volunteers.  

    I've created a test form which works quite well at both ends (centre managers populate and central store) for key info but we want to add some "office use" only elements to a stock re-ordering form so that when our stock manager receives the form it has printable boxes into which he can hand write any amendments etc. to be able to send out with the stock.

    I've added a "hidden" item to the form but it means it doesn't appear at all when printed.  i'd be happy to have the elements visible on the form but not for them to be live

    Thanks for any help!

    A workaround would be to create a conditional logic on your form fields.


    IF "Office Use" is equal to "your password"

       Show Office Use Only fields.

    Creating hide/show condition is pretty easy, check this guide to learn how.
