How to Show or Hide Fields on Edit URL

Last Update: September 2, 2016

Edit URL is basically used for updating user's submissions data without logging into JotForm account.

There are some cases that you'd want to show or hide fields on edit URL mostly for administrative purposes like the following.

  1.   - Add a status on the user's submissions
  2.   - Add additional details
  3.   - Update admin only fields
  4.   - Hide fields that you do not wish to be updated by the users

Here's how to do that:

1. Add the "Get Form Page URL" widget into your form. It is found under More Fields section.


2. Create a Show/Hide condition. Here's how:

  a. Click Conditions icon in the form builder
  b. Select Show/Hide Field condition
  c. Create show/hide condition like the following

If Get Form Page URL widget Contains "edit", show or hide the fields that you want.


Demo: 

Form URL: https://form.jotform.com/62321689030956 (Status field is hidden)

Edit URL: https://form.jotform.com/edit/347483859341529452 (Status field is shown)

Hi,
I tested this procedure but when I update a record with fields hidden, the same are updated in blank.

I've updated a record and some fields are hidden with this condition. The result was the visible fields updated correctly, the hidden fields blank!!!

How I can correct it?
Many Thanks
