    Hi

    Is it possible to create user accounts in JotForm?

    An account, once created, allows that registered user to submit forms as a registered user (not simply as another standalone form).

    The registered user would also be able to view previously submitted forms.

    Thanks.

    You can create sub user accounts. That will allow you to share forms with other Jotform users. But this is purely for development of your forms.

    An account, once created, allows that registered user to submit forms as a registered user (not simply as another standalone form).

    No unfortunately due to abuse from some users making login forms is prohibited. According to our terms of use:

    "Phishing. You agree that Company may terminate your JotForm Service immediately if a form's purpose is found to be deceptively obtaining: sensitive credit card information, social security numbers, user login credentials, or other sensitive personal information. All these activities are considered as Phishing and any account along with the violating forms will be suspended immediately.

    Collecting Sensitive Information. You may not use the JotForm to collect certain types of sensitive information, including but not limited to credit card information and any type of login credentials."

    As a workaround you could build a site that handles the authentication. Then once logged in to the site display a page with an embedded form. The form would be used to collect your data (and not to collect usernames/passwords).


    The registered user would also be able to view previously submitted forms.

    You can setup a grid listing report with optional password protection. And then embed this on your page. This would allow your users to view submission data.
