    Can I have a Client Verification Form with Password Protected Area

    Asked by jotithoward on December 14, 2012 at 03:53 PM



    I am having trouble understanding what I can and cant do with forms for purposes of client verification.   I have not created the form yet, but I will very easily if what I propose is ok within your rules. The last thing I want to do is to be blacklisted or have my forms be taken down.


    To explain. I want to have a password protected section of my site but I don't have the ability to give unique password to everyone.


    What i would like to do make a form to help authorized clients verify themselves to have access to the protected area.


    Jotform  structure

    email :



    Jotform  conditions

    if password = ABCD1234   (predefined by me)

    and email = client email...




    Option 1:

     show link to go to protected area


    Option 2:

    show 'enter' or 'submit' button and redirect client to area


    Option 3:

    show captcha +  submit...and redirect to area


    Please let me know if any of these solutions are best case for staying within things I am allowed to do with Jotforms.

    Just a couple comments that I would like to add to my colleagues comments.

    1. Any Password you use on a form will be viewable if a user reviews the forms source code.

    2. After the form is created, please get in touch with us so that we can whitelist it.
