    I am wondering if jotform have the ability to do something like this.

    2 fields: username and password  field.  it will be like a login form but every one username and password is the same. Once the jotform verify username and password is that, then they get redirect to another url.

    This is very much doable. The same concept had been done before.

    Like this form. (use test/test for the input)

    This is achieved using the redirect condition in the Conditional Logic features of the form.

    Most of the time though, you will see a precaution note to such concept -- it is because the login/password field you will be putting on the form is actually just 'visible'.

    The form html source code is readable/viewable using any text editor. This makes your form's 'verifying/confirmation' rules a bit useless as any user can just input the right data anytime.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    In addition to what my colleague has stated, various techniques can be used to make it more difficult for users to discover the username and password. This page contains a clone of Jonathan's form. If the source is viewed, you'll see that it's more difficult to find out what the username and password are (not impossible, just more difficult). Most of this demo's code has been converted to JavaScript, removed from the page and placed in a separate file. Finally, this other tool was used to obfuscate the script. More robust obfuscation may require tools like this one. I guess it all depends on how important it is to have the username and passwrd hidden.

    If you need further assistance with this or clarification on anything, just let us know. We'd be happy to help you in whatever way we can.
