    Preview Before Submit: How to hide empty fields

    Asked by sisters7 on June 10, 2016 at 05:48 PM



    This form is designed for group registration of 1 to 6 people. When there is only one registrant who fills out 2017 MSC Convention Form 1, 2017 MSC Convention Form 2, 3, 4 ,5 and 6 should be in hiding. Even though I used "skip to page 7", form 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 still show up in preview. How do I hide them from preview?

    I would like to help.

    The reason why it didn't skip is because the other fields in the other pages are required. I suggest you place a field where you can choose a number of people(1-6), then use the conditional logic to hide and multiple unrequire the remaining form fields. For example, a Dropdown field where you can choose a number from 1 to 6, then use conditional logics "enable / require field" and "skip to page" to hide and unrequire the remaing pages and fields.



    I tried your form using these conditions with a number of people equal to 1 and it work, it skip to page 7 with just the page 1 filled out.


    I hope it help.

    To hide the the empty fields and titles on preview page, you will need to switch the 'Show Title' and 'Include Empty Inputs' options to 'No' in Preview Before Submit widget settings.

    Also, remove Default Result values from calculation fields. Otherwise, these 0 values will be displayed on the preview page.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. It didn't work for me, there are so many fields to unrequire. I think there will be around 750 people who will register. Around 200 - 250 will register as a group from 2 - 6 people. Perhaps I should reduce it to 4 forms.
