Request to bring "Hide empty fields" on email templates in new interface

    It would be really great if you can add this to the new interface. The changes you recently made are more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasant. I have 100+ fields on a conditional form so hiding the unentered ones is important, but having to switch to an older and less intuitive interface to do so is disappointing.

    Thank you for letting us know about your experience.

    As far as I know this was planned to bring into the new interface, so I will raise this to our developers so that we can update you as soon as the same becomes available.

    Currently, as you have mentioned, it is only available by switching to old interface.

    I am having the same issue as well.  Hopefully, this will be given TOP PRIORITY.

    There have been several requests to bring this functionality back and it is should be added back quite soon.  In the mean time, while editing your form, if you reload the page from this URL:

    It will bring up the old UI.  The option to hide empty fields is still available from the old UI.

    Thanks for tip. Yes you were correct but I first had to lock the table which meant deleting the email and recreate it and make no changes to the table i.e. had to leave the Jotform logo there and no longer able to replace it with my own logo.

    By the way, how do I revert to the new UI after loading with'old'? Do I need to clear the cache or something?
