Hidden fields in forms - what's their use?

 

There can be various use cases for hidden fields:

- get a hold of GET parameters in the URL to save more information on the supporter in your webform results. 

- hide form fields that get pre-filled anyway, to get an even better user experience.

Warning: Further hidden field settings are available under the URL yourCampaignionURL.org/node/11/webform/components. Please note that the purple bits need changing to match the form in question.
In particular, if you need to pre-populate a hidden field or use it in relation with conditionals, you need to access the field settings from the previous URL to change its display settings from "Secure value" to "Hidden element". A more detailed description of this change in available here.
