    How to hide fields in form but display in in submission emails?

    Asked by tiagonunes0 on October 03, 2016 at 05:15 AM


    im new on jotform and i have a website and i need forms there
    But i have 2 questions.

    1- How can i hide a text with info on form about something but when the viewers on site put their email, they can see the info on the email?

    2- how can i connect wordpress to jotform? because i want create a form where they only have a radio button and they put "yes" ou "no" and when i received the answer i can see who put "yes" or "no" (they only can see the form after they login on site, so what i want is automatically fill in the name field through the information i have in the database)

    thank you

    Hello tiagonunes0,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to hide a form field but the data should be visible in the submission emails. 

    Please note that when you hide a form field, user will not be able to see the field and input any data in that field. The submission email will only show the blank field. 

    If you want to show the content of text field in submission email, you can directly add it in the text field. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    And about my second doubt?


    On the page where I have the form you need to login and what I want is to automatically fill in the name field with the login name. Basically they just had to fill the radio button because the name was automatically filled
