    Is there a way to hide a segment of the form for administration to fill out, which is not shown to others?

    Can i have a form created where the user fills out a portion then their is a FOUO section they cant see but when submitted it goes to an inbox where it can be edited so the FOUO portion can then be filled out so they can save the forms?

    Yes, that is possible.

    The best way to do that would be to add all of the fields that you wish to have on your form and then add a page on the form (or add one more page). Basically that last page should be hidden and accessed over a special URL so that people filling out the form can not see the same nor think that it exists.

    I have created a quick demo for you to check out and see if that is something that you could use, and if so, we would be happy to guide you through the steps.

    Link as people filling the form out would see:

    https://form.jotform.com/53474722826966

    Link to the administration section (this needs to have the edit link as well):

    https://form.jotform.com/53474722826966?jumpToPage=2

    Together with the edit link it would look like:

    https://eu.jotform.com/53474722826966?mode=edit&sid=325922073832146023&jumpToPage=2

    Do let us know if that would work for you and as mentioned above we would be happy to assist with the same.

    If you wish to check it out for yourself I would suggest taking a look at the following guides:
