    Can the forms have different functions based on levels of accessibility?

    Asked by deanwright on July 26, 2017 at 08:54 PM

    I would like to have checkboxes and long-text boxes available and visible ONLY for admins, and not for users. This way admins can assess the input privately.

    You previously sent me these links in response to this question. I have no idea what these are.

    You could do that by adding the code field, known only to admins, so when they enter the code, the check boxes and long text area will show.

    For example:

    And this condition will show the fields when "test" is entered for code:

    Another way with the same form would be to use the pre populate link. The link that will prefill the code field and show the long text and checkboxes, for example:


    That way the code field can be hidden for the end user and your admins can access the hidden part of the form with the URL above.

    Here is my test form, feel free to check it: https://form.jotformpro.com/72071031185951

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
