Hi,

I currently have a form that my visitor completes and I am sent a pdf of their submission.

This form is normally used to be sent on to a third party, how can I stop the personal info (email address) being shown on the page but retained in backend so I can refer to the information later?

thanks

Hello,

You wrote "how can I stop the personal info (email address) being shown on the page but retained in backend so I can refer to the information later?".

Please elaborate a bit more, where do you want the email address to be shown and where not to? Where do you fetch the email address, does the user enter it in a filed in the form?

Regards,

Mihaela

Hi,
I think I have worked this out but please tell me if I am wrong or if there is a better way of doing it.

The visitor fills in Email field.

A PDF is sent to us upon submission with all inputted information and some additional text>
(this document is sent on at a later date to 3rd parties) who we do not want to see the personal information (email address, just the name).

So I think, I should just delete the email field in the PDF template and if I need that info I can look in the Forms received in the backend, (Is that correct?)

Hello again,

Yes, that is correct. If you don't want the email field to appear in the PDF sent with the email, but you still want to have it saved somewhere, the best solution is to delete the email field in PDF template.

That way the third parties who receive that PDF won't see the email, and you can always look for the email address in BreezingForms > Manage records since there all form submissions are saved.

Regards,

Mihaela
