    How to restrict access to actual submission page in Calendar Report?

    Asked by jpthurston on April 26, 2017 at 03:37 AM

    Hi, I have a feature request for the Calendar report. At the moment, I am using it to display to customers whether a day is filled or not, but when they view it, they can easily drill down to the responses that have been submitted by other customers, which includes details I would rather not share. I see that I can password protect the entire calendar, but that removes access entirely. I want customers to be able to see the calendar report, but not the data that it links to. Here is a link to my report:

    https://www.jotform.com/calendar/70661013929051

    And this is the form itself:

    https://form.jotform.com/62504803844152

    I have also looked at the calendar widget options but none of them are ideal for my purposes. My form is set up to book reservations for my newsletter. Only Fridays are available and only three slots each Friday. Logistically, users could book more than three slots, but the calendar report allows them to see whether a day is fully booked or not, and choose the next date that has fewer than three slots filled. 

    I'd love either a way to block that drill-down for anyone that isn't me, or any other options (if there is a widget that would work for this, that would be great).

    Thank you

    Hello jpthurston,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you need to just show the calendar report and when some one click on a row, it should show the field data but should not be clickable. Is that correct? 

    It seems currently clicking on the field value of calendar report redirects user to another page which displays the entire submission data. I am creating a feature request ticket and forwarding it to our backend team. Please note that creating a feature request does not ensure that the feature will be implemented. It completely depends upon the feasibility and priority of our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Yes. I would like the option to disable the redirect but still have the calendar be visible as-is. Perhaps password protecting at a different level or just not hyperlinking to the entire submission data. Thank you!
