Somehow the 3 important fields from one of my forms have disappeared.

When I go into the form settings I see that the fields are still there but they are no longer visible on the actual form.

How can I get those fields to display on the form again?

Thank you!

If they are showing in your Form Layout Properties, check the Form Rules to make sure they are not part of hide/show rules.

Also, in Layout, make sure they are correctly set for the Add/View/Edit properties.

Thanks for your quick response.  I've checked both of your suggestions and the fields are not part of the hide/show rule and the Add/View/Edit properties is checked for all.  I'm stumped!

Are they in a SECTION which is hidden by a form rule? I assume that you must have some form rules - so one suggestion is to disable (not delete, just temporarily disable) all form rules and if your fields pop back, then its due to a form rule.  As you re-enable the form rules, one by one,  then you will see which is the culprit.

Another thing to check is whether those fields had custom permissions set - so that certain roles can't view those particular fields.
