    How to show form only to visitors located in a specific country.

    Asked by infiniteali on February 02, 2017 at 11:34 AM

    Receiving international submissions that we do not service. Is there a way to hide a jotform if the IP address is not located in the US?

    This is possible, please follow this workaround:

    1) Click on Form Elements>>Widgets>>Type "Get Visitor Location" and add the widget.

    2) Click on the wand icon:



    3) Leave the country option checked only, and click on "Update widget":

    4) Then click on the gear icon and scroll down to hide the field by setting it to 'YES", and click on the save button below:

    5) Then add a Section Collapse field, and label it as you want to, in this case I have named it as "Show form"

    6) Then create the following condition:

    (Click on Settings>>Conditions>>Show/Hide Field)

    7) Finally, change the collapse settings to have the "Section Visibility" as "Visible" and the "Button Visibility" as "Hidden":

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.co/60636046528861 

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried the "Get the Location" widget but it didn't show an output like your screenshot when "update widget" was clicked. Is there another step?

    I have removed the widget from now, and forwarded this to our back-end team. Also I made a clone version of your form in your account, so our back-end team can test with it. You will be notified via this thread when this gets fixed.

    The widget is working now but following the instructions didn't show a form, the demo is also blank. Resolved it with the following:

    1) Value in the Condition should be "Country: United States"

    2) The condition didn't work for me if the Get Location Widget was hidden through settings. I hid the input ID through CSS and it seems to work.
