    How to hide a field from the form, but still be able to use it in the calculations and show it up in the email notifier?

    Asked by ssreverb on April 21, 2015 at 10:21 AM

    I received word from my client that they want it to work exactly like this, but they don't want the user to see the charge code.

    Is there anyway to hide that data/field from the user but have the charge codes only show up on the notification email to us?

    The best way to hide it or any other field on your jotform would be to click on the (in this case) Form Calculation widget and then click on the little gear wheel in the quick action bar

    Once you do, you will see the Hide field option

    Once you do, you will be shown a notice under the field that the field will not be shown on the form. In the same time the field will still be available and be doing calculations on the form.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions in regards to this and we would be happy to assist.
