    Receiving blank submissions

    Asked by Adslive_media on June 12, 2015 at 08:48 PM

    I'm getting blank submissions from a form we're using as landing page on a mobile campaign.

    The form has fields marked as requiered, so it shouldn't be possible to send it empty.

    Any idea of why this is happening?


    Form ID number is: 51483896886982

    I did a test submission on your form that is embedded on the webpage and it was successful. I was able to submit the form and saw the thank you page. I can also see the submission in the submissions area. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please try to do a submission again. If the issue persist, please try to re-embed the form using Iframe method.

    Thank you.

    Here's a report of the form with the blank submissions marked on yellow: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tLdfXUZYAT9FjStEz-diItMYqYehT3ZlDkn6zGNdYTQ/edit?usp=sharing and a screenshot.



    I understand it doesn't happen all the time, but it shouldn't be happening at all.



    I'll wait for your feedback.

    Hi Johathan,

    I checked your submission and I did see the blank ones.  However, when I tested your form, I was unable to complete a submission without having the required fields filled.  If you had recently changed your embed code to the iFrame code, this may resolve the issue.  Some browsers may have been allowing submissions without required fields.  Though, I was unable to reproduce this.

    If any further blank submissions come through while using the iFrame, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.
