Showing & hiding fields

By default, fields will always display on the form. However, you may want to hide specific fields or sections based on certain conditions such as a selected value of another field on the form.

To hide (or show) a field, click on the field in the builder. The field's settings will appear to the left side of the builder canvas. Select the appropriate option under the Show This Field section:

  • Always - Field is always shown.
  • When - Field will only display when specific conditions are met. After selecting this option, the Conditional Logic Builder dialog will display allowing you to select when the field or section should be displayed.
  • Internally - Field will not display on the public form and will only display when a Cognito Forms user is editing the form from the Entries page.
  • Never - Field will never display.
