I'm new to Airtable and I need help with something. I have a table with Date Field hidden, but it's annoying that whenever I need to add a row the hidden field cannot be edited unless I'm either un-hide the field or expand the row and edit it there. Is there a way I can make the hidden field show when I add a new row to the table just so I can edit it when I create the new row? the Date Field is hidden due to the fact I don't want the Days to be shown so I'm using Function Field using DateTime_Format.

Hi there!

Right now, hidden fields will remain hidden when adding new records to your table. So that you are able to see/enter information into these fields when adding records, I'd recommend creating a view specific for adding records where the desired field is not hidden. Alternatively, you could try out the form view. Both options will allow you to customize a view to show the specific fields you want to enter data into when adding records. Hope this helps!
