    Browser and OS information from the form submitter can now be captured.


    Here's how to do this:

    1) Click on Widgets.

    2) Search Hidden Box.


    2) Drag and drop  Hidden Box tool to your form and also right click it and select "Show Properties".



    4) Set "Yes" on the Browser Info to display user's browser info on every form submission.



    Here is how it works:



    You can use the following link appended with the IP tag {ip} on your form notification. It creates a clickable link so you can capture the IP details of user which is provided by whatismyipaddress.com.
