Hidden Variables: use on documents for internal integration usage, yet be hidden from signers.
Be able to have "hidden variables" to be able to use on documents for internal integration usage, yet be hidden from signers.

It works to add custom fields/variables to the Meta-data (using make.com) that are passed in the background. However, as James Barry said, a better solution is to return all variables in the token array. Otherwise, one has to literally hide (using white text for example) the variables in the template, which is a pretty hacky workaround, and not suitable for data that you don't want exposed.

Having some way of passing fields or variables to downstream apps that the signers cannot see would be a massive business automation improvement!

If the get template details api could return all custom variables, they wouldn't have to be hidden. I suggest we simlpy return all custom variables in the Tokens array object, including any default values, even if they are not used in the template, and let the client program decided ehow to use them (or not).
