    Using one form to create a condition on another form.

    Asked by techknowvision on December 03, 2012 at 06:22 PM

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is possible but here is what I am looking to do. My client has a password protected directly on there site. I want to use jotform to create a form with conditions so if their client types in say their last name, it will direct them to a specific page with files just for them. I know this is 100% already, but heres the catch.. I would prefer to not give my client access to jotform. So what I am thinking is, is there a way to somehow setup a seperate form that their clients could fill out that would dump their last name into the conditions on the first form? So we have the original form with all of the conditions basically chosing what submissions go to what pages. Then we have a seperate form that creates conditions using the information proveded by the first form. Please let me know if anyone can help me with this.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    I am trying to get the hang of what you are trying to do.. =) Here is how I understand it.

    Please correct where I get it all wrong. 

    I would prefer to not give my client access to jotform. So what I am thinking is, is there a way to somehow setup a seperate form that their clients could fill out that would dump their last name into the conditions on the first form? 

    You can do this if you setup the form on separate page and password protect the access to the html/PHP page (not the password in the form). You may try to have 2 type of access password, the 'owner' (you) and for your 'client's client'(form user).

    With this setup, your client will never be able to access your form without the access password.

    BUT -- if a form user (your client's client) gave the access link to your client... there is no reason now why your form cannot be seen by your client.

    I am not sure if an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) to the form user is applicable. But you my want to apply that also.

    Hope this help.

    Thanks.
