    Looking for hidden comment box to write follow up notes on each submission.

    Asked by c21c21c21 on September 16, 2014 at 01:27 PM

    Hello,

    Is there any way that I can add a text box or field which is hidden on the form when it is viewed by public, while it is visible in the submission email I receive notifying me about new submissions, that I can use to write comments after follow up with the lead, and that text can be saved and modified for the future to have it for record when follow up again with that lead?

    Please let me know if there is such and where can I find it?

    If not available, would you guys consider adding this feature in the future? 

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Though we do not currently have this feature, there are a few workarounds that can be used to accomplish what you are looking for.  Essentially by adding a hidden text area that is only shown based on the contents of a textbox, you can create a sort of admin area in your form.  Here is a discussion of what I am referring to:

    If this is not what you were looking for, please let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can do.
