    Emails: Ability to Hide Empty Fields AND hide other fields even if they are filled

    Asked by GICS on February 16, 2016 at 02:51 AM

    Hi there,

    I know at the moment that I cannot  choose fields to hide in a responder email and still also hide empty fields automatically since the auto-hide empty fields is triggered by the fact that the table is locked....and I need to unlock it to choose fields to edit.

    It really really really would be great to be able to have the best of both worlds in the auto-responder email.

    Please consider adding this functionality. The priority would be on the chosen fields to hide, and other blank fields could hide as long as they are empty.

    Another iteration would be a tick box to auto-hide fields with a hidden parameter or a conditional hide on the form.

    This is a great product. Very clever implementation. Can you make it even better?

    Peter, I will forward your nice suggestion as a feature request to our developers.

    As you already know, it is not possible at the moment to both choose which fields will be shown and hide empty fields. I am forwarding your request about having both functionalities available at the same time, but we can;t give you any estimates on how soon or even promises whether it will be implemented.

    If such a feature becomes available, we will make sure to update you through this thread.
