How to Hide Form Fields

September 15, 2021

If you wish to hide your form fields, so they don’t appear on the user’s end, this guide will help you do it. Let’s get started.

To quickly hide a field, you can do it by clicking the field, then right-clicking, and click the Hide option from the quick options:

You can also do it through the properties section of a field. Here are the steps:

1. Select the field, and click its Properties option.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Scroll in the Advanced tab window, and you should be able to see the Hide Field button. Toggle it to ON to hide the field.

In the form builder, when the field is not selected, you should see that it is grayed out. When you select the field, you can see the message that says that the field is hidden.

When you publish the form and use the direct link, you can see that the “Text Box” field that is hidden is not visible anymore. 

You can now hide different form fields, and this depends on your use case. Some users set up hidden fields when calculating total scores, and some do that to set a hidden status text box. This really depends on how you want to use it.
