    Enter Button - Submitting the Form

    Asked by emmaushomes on January 25, 2017 at 01:37 PM

    Good morning!

    Is there a way to not allow a form to be submitted after hitting the Enter Button in a text field? We have a box that requires a certain word to pull up a signature. However, if instead of click out of the box and I click enter, it submits the form without a signature.

    You need to turn on the "Required" function in the E-signature Field. In this way, the user cannot submit the form if it is blank.

    Also, try adding a Captcha field at the bottom of your form. This will prevent the form to be submitted accidentally. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/205-How-to-Add-a-CAPTCHA-field

    Also, you might be interested in using the E-signature widget. Here's the link: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/signature
