    I have a hidden field on my form. I want to add a unique but specific number for each form that was submitted so that when i look at the submissions in the table, this column is populated with this data. I checked the button so that i can see the hidden filed, but when i try to edit the form submissions, the hidden field does not show up in the form to allow me to enter info into it. I do see it on the form in the submission page, but not when i click on edit.

    Hi Pam,

    Hidden fields on edit mode are usually placed on top for easier editing.

    I can see the hidden field in your on edit mode but it is covered by the header banner. I would suggest to inject the following CSS codes to your form (place it at the very bottom) so it will reveal the hidden field on edit mode.

    li#id_39 {

      position: relative;

      z-index: 99999;
