Workaround for a minor forms bug

Note to myself and others: if only a submit button in the form is needed, a workaround is necessary in order to view form submissions.

Say that you need a button at the end of a page with "I agree" caption. If it's an Intranet or an Extranet, you'd want to see who clicked on it and at least you'd like to see the timestamp when this has been submitted. However, there is a minor bug - you can't! 

As a workaround, just add any other element, but given that you probably wouldn't want something visible,  go ahead and add ex. Hidden visitor profiling, it might even be in use, given that you can configure it to collect:
  • Geo data
  • Profile
  • User agent
  • Visitor groups
Now, go ahead, submit again and both the first and the second entries are visible.

If you remove the profiling, you are back to square one, no values are visible.

P.S. Reported the bug, when fixed, I'll update the blogpost.
