    Why are hidden fields showing on a Email responder my customers get?

    Asked by BodygroupInt on July 08, 2016 at 09:58 AM



    I have hidden fields in my form,  and when the customer completes the form and recieves their copy of the form they filled out, all of my hidden fields are displaying, for the customer to see.

    Can I stop this on the customers copy from happening??

    Thanks for your reply.

    Actually, whatever fields in your form are automatically added on the autoresponder notification by default. However, you can edit your autoresponder and delete the field questions along with their field variables that you don't want to include on the autoresponder message. 

    To do that, just click on Emails icon while on the form builder. Then edit the Autoresponder.

    On the autoresponder message, just delete the questions you want.

    Hope this helps!
