Document of Record - Exclude fields if hidden not working.


Level 4

Hi all,

I've set up Document of Record with our Adaptive Forms per Adobe Experience Manager Help | Generate Document of Record for adaptive forms, and some functionality does not seem to work.

I have hidden fields that will only show if another field is clicked (ex: What color do you like? Red, Blue, Other -> if they choose Other, then a hidden "Other" text box shows).

However, I've set the "Exclude fields from DoR if hidden" to true, but all my hidden fields still show on my DoR. Only if I select on the field level "Exclude from DoR" do they not show, but I can't find a way to make that conditional - these hidden fields I do want to show if they have data.

Also, no matter what I check, if I have a repeating subform with buttons to add and delete instances, those will show on the DoR if used.

I've tested on both our custom DoR and on the Default Generated DoR from Adobe, and see the same behavior.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
