You did not miss anything, hiding the empty fields from the Notification isn't something we currently support. You can vote on that feature here: http://forums.adobe.com/ideas/2453
You can also vote on the similar request for PDF here: http://forums.adobe.com/ideas/1045
I'm glad you've enjoyed using FormsCentral and do hope we can update these features in time to keep you;-) We do use the ideas pages to help prioritize new features.
Thanks for your fast response. I realize that Adobe Formscentral is not, or was not originally intended for vast questionnaires but making these relatively slight modifications would allow it to be used in this way, and given how difficult PDFs are to edit after the fact it seems like adding filters on what content will flow through to the final pdf or in the very least the notification email would be a no brainer. It limits the use of the product in a big way, and given that this feature is already available in the Emailed receipt to the form fillers, and not the form creators (you know, the ones that pay for your product) it seems like an even bigger over sight. It means that we have to pay an employee to edit our responses before it’s consumer ready, when it would be SO SO SO easy to just forward on a properly filtered original directly from formscentral. Anyway, I’ll get off my stump now and just hope that this will be taken care of before our subscription is up for renewal.
You all might want to think about consolidating the like ideas for a more accurate vote tally, as this topic has been asked a great many different ways. (as I’m sure you already know)
I'm having this issue when downloading the responses. I have a form that has options applicable only if certain items are selected and everything is showing up on the downloaded response. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
For the "Download Response as PDF Form" all of the fields are included in the PDF, this is not something you can configure.
It would be a really great feature to be able to hide non-completed fields from the "download response as PDF" and/or from the "Row details" view. This had actually been the 'make or break' feature when comparing three options for a project proposal system - the ability to produce clean, legible proposal documents from a fairly long requirements survey.
