How to Show or Hide Fields on Edit URL

December 12, 2021

Edit URL is basically used for updating specific submissions data without logging in to a Jotform account.

There are some cases that you’d want to show or hide fields when editing an entry mostly for administrative purposes like the following:

  • Add a status on the user’s submissions
  • Add additional details
  • Update admin-only fields
  • 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 to your form.
form-builder-add-get-page-url
  1. Create a Show/Hide Field condition.
form-builder-conditions-show-hide-field

If the Get Form Page URL widget contains the word “edit”, show or hide the fields that you want.

show-hide-field-condition
