    We are looking to create forms for an awards program. When the forms are outputted, will unanswered questions still be included in the output file?

    If you're referring to when submissions are exported to Excel or CSV, then yes unanswered questions are also included on the file.

    If you're referring to PDF then you can control if you want to show unanswered questions or not by checking/unchecking the "Auto hide empty fields" option in the submissions screen.

    Is this what you're referring to? Or?
