    Is it possible to set a condition that will „show field x“ ONLY after the form has been sent?

    Asked by ygo1wk on January 05, 2016 at 07:29 PM

    EDIT: Problem solved :)

    Hello together,

    i'm looking for a way to show a specific field only after the form has been sent.

    So some sort of:



       form is sent


       show field "x"


    In the annexed form you will see the field "What was your final score?". This shall be "x" from above.



    I initially want to show the field "What was your final score?" when a user comes back to his submission over the "edit submission"-link.

    He will then has to fill in his achieved final score that he e.g. reached within a tournament.


    Can you help me to find a solution?

    Thx in advance for your efforts.



    P.S.: Feel free to copy/modify my form!

    So, have a look a the form below, it explains how a field will become visible ONLY after the form was sent for the first time.


    @Jotform-Support: Please transfer the form to your collection and change the link here, allowing me, to discard it from my account in the next time.
