Form requiring action before submit button is active

My app’s URL:

I have a form that does not require any user input but provides optional input for one field. It has 2 hidden fields that do get sent during submission. For whatever reason, the ‘submit’ button is inactive unless the user modifies the optional field. What I want is for the user to pull up the form and submit it immediately as there are no user-input required fields.

Hey @esaghir, welcome!

Can you share some screenshots?

You haven’t set a date in you Date/Time component. That’s why
Once is blank, it won’t be able to submit

Can you try hiding or removing your date entry component temporarily? I would think you could submit since you are including column values. I’m just wondering if it’s being thrown off because you have a single entry component. If it works, maybe you’ll need to add some workaround with another column to hold a checkbox value and use the checkbox to show or hide the date component, or use as a confirmation checkbox. I’m pretty sure you can submit forms with no entry components and only column values, so I would think this should work.

Just to be sure… You do not have the ‘required’ checkbox selected for the date, correct?

That doesn’t seem like intuitive design, that field is optional.

Jeff - Yes, the ‘required’ checkbox is indeed unchecked. Thanks for the workaround tip, I’ll try the visibility approach. I do think this is a bug and not acting as intended.

Thats why I’d try @Jeff_Hager suggestion

I’d agree with you. I’ll need to go back and find it, but I noticed that in one of my apps, a form wouldn’t be able to be submitted unless I filled an optional field. I’ll post when I find it.
