    How is it that I am seeing hidden fields when editing the form in the View Submissions interface?

    Asked by UQCC on February 23, 2015 at 10:52 AM

    One thing I'm finding odd is editing hidden fields. Basically I'm using them similarly to most people - as a way of storing extra information about individual entries. Please let me know if I'm doing the wrong thing in the following method....

    1. I've added a number of hidden fields to a large form.

    Like I mentioned in your original thread, hidden fields are shown automatically in this interface because you are the administrator for the form. These fields are not shown publicly so there is no need to worry - all data stored in those fields are safely hidden from the your form users. Do let us know if you have any further questions in relation to this inquiry on this thread and we will have it addressed.


    Cheers!
