Dynamically Populating a box that is Conditionally Hidden (and stays hidden)

  1. I've stumbled onto a bug (or intended behavior). If I pass a value to a dynamically populated field, but that field is hidden (and remains hidden) during submission, it doesn't pick up the value. I've got a form with a ton of conditional fields, and I was trying to reuse a field that I knew would be inactive for a certain use case. I can add a new admin only field for this data, but the form is already pretty long.

    Is this normal? Anyone else run into this?

  2. This is intended behavior because the conditional logic is taking precedence here. Fields hidden by conditional logic are ignored, so this is intended functionality.

  3. Thanks, I'll add another admin only field. It might be smart to add this into the dynamic population help article or somewhere (I couldn't find it).
