    Hide Columns in Submissions of Grid report

    Asked by larryback on April 29, 2015 at 04:17 PM

    Is there a way to permanently hide selected columns in the submissions or grid reports?  I can uncheck the boxes, but then when I close and re-open the reports, those fields are restored.

    Hi,

    At the present the grid columns cannot be hidden permanently from the browser, the grid is dynamically generated every-time the browser is refreshed

    Thanks, Sammy.  How is it that I was able to hide the Submission Date field on this grid report: http://www.jotform.com/grid/51176461151045, but not this one:

    As I check the grid report for your JotForm titled "Report Card - Personal, Professional, Auto Services", I see that Submission Date is checked. 

    You may uncheck the fields that are not required from the report by clicking on Edit button and save the report.

    You may also try generating a new Grid report for your JotForm. Hope this information helps.

    Thanks, Kiran. That's very instructive.  Creating a new grid report worked.
