    Hiding field with default value from the form, but still show in the form submissions page and email

    Asked by Haler on December 29, 2014 at 12:06 AM

    Hidden fields are quite common and a goof marketing tool for gathering data on which form works best

    I have missed finding one to add to my current form and all others in the future. I will have many variations of forms, some will be the same form with differences being tested.

    Just need to know where To get a field who's value will be hidden, but show up in the data collected.

    Hi Haler,

    You can hide any fields with default values. Just click "Show Properties" and click "Hide":

    Or, if you're looking for our Hidden Field, it's now called Hidden Box Widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/hidden.

    Here's how you can add a widget to your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form.
