    I just created a registration form. I was wondering if there is a way for my clients to choose a password and sign in? I run a transcription business and I'm trying to find easier ways for me to run my business. Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Are you trying to password protect the form, or are your clients choosing a password when registering for your site?  Unfortunately there is no way to password protect a form on JotForm. You should probably have a password protected area on your site (by possibly using .htaccess) and keep your forms there if you want to do this.

    If you are trying to get your users to select a password for your website then I'm afraid thats not possible either, since submissions from the form go to jotForm rather than to your website.  The only option I can offer is to download your submissions regularly in Excel format, and then try some kind of batch upload to your own website registration page.  However it's unlikely that you'd manage this without some development effort for your own website.

    Regards,

    Daniel.

     

    EDIT Feb 21st.

    Just a thought, if you are trying to get your users to create a password for your own site, you could try creating your own thank-you page and handling it there.  Here's a post on how to do that
