    I need to introduce a hidden date on my form

    Asked by adam.barker on February 09, 2015 at 10:26 AM


    I have set up a form to collect issues raised by the team.  Once submitted I want to be able to update additional fields associated with each issue - such as the issue status, date completed etc.

    I do no want these 'control' fields cluttering the initial issues form.

    I have introduced some hidden fields for the alpha/numeric fields but cannot find anything for a hidden Date Closed field.

    Can you help please.

    Hi Adam,

    Any fields can be set hidden on the form builder. Just right click the field or click its cog icon to open its options and select hide field. 


    If you want the field to be read-only, you can do that by going to its properties.

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you!
