Hiding a field from data entry

The following section describes how to hide a field from data entry when designing a Form. You might want to do that, if for example the field has a functional role which does not make sense to be shared with the users adding Records and you plan to use it when you add a new Report. When you hide a field from data entry it is hidden both from the Form in which users add Records and from the Table View.

How to hide a field from data entry

  • In the Form Design page, click on the field you want to hide.
  • In the Field Card editor,  check the box next to "Hide from entry".
  • Click on "Done" to save the field.
  • The property has been added and the field is marked with the "HIDDEN" tag in the Form Design page. When you finish adding fields, click on "Save" to save the Form.
