Hidden/ Admin FieldsAsked by kevinomalley on January 05, 2012 at 06:53 AM
I'd like to add a few hidden fields to the end of my form for admin purposes. The hidden text box isn't ideal as I'd like them to be radio buttons and date fields to indicate that something has been done and when it was carried out. Can this be done (either natively or with some CSS tweaking)?
I have previously submitted a ticket for such a feature request - i.e., the ability to insert fields that are viewable only to form administrators. Unfortunately, our development's team workload has been very heavy lately. Thus, we cannot guarantee a timeframe as to when a feature becomes implemented, if at all.
Here's a workaround I'd like to suggest:
Hide your "admin fields" from front end users' view using conditions. You can probably add a textbox in your form then show the "admin felds" if the correct code is entered.
Your users will not be able to see the admin fields you added. They can only see the "admin only" textbox.
When you go to your submissions page, edit the submission then type in the codes you have configured in the conditions so that the hidden admin fields will appear.
Thanks for this- it works great- loving jotform by the way
