    To inspect your form, I sent a test submission to your form with ID:61252684803153.

    As you can see in the screenshot of the test submission above, only selected item is shown. I also inspected the options of the submission. Your submissions were already set to auto hide empty fields. Thus the submissions are not showing any empty fields and unselected items.


    However, if you do not want unselected to be shown in the preview page, please follow the screenshots below.

    1. Go to your form and customize your Preview Before Submit widget.

    2. Set Include Empty Inputs as No and add the field names you want to be hidden to Hidden Fields. 

    Here is the guide for finding field IDs and names. 


    I hope these help. If the problem still continues, please contact us.
