How to allow multiple users to fill the form but no access to edit the form?

    Hello,

    I'm trying to find the best way for multiple users (likely 2 or 3) to be able to FILL a form on the mobile app. They should not have access to edit the form, if possible (kiosk mode?), but should have access to fill it in.

    If I create an account and clone the form I've created into it, can they use just that account to fill it in and submit?

    Hi there,

    You can open a form on a Kiosk Mode on our new mobile forms app.

    https://apps.apple.com/app/id1391524277

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jotform.v2

    However, this isn't for unattended access since the form is launch in Kiosk mode through the app. If they've figured how to close Kiosk, they'll be able to view the data in forms.

    Cloning the form isn't the best option if you want the submission to go to your form. 

    If this is for unattended access, you may consider sharing the form URL so they can fill it through their browser. However, this method requires an internet connection.

    Would "adding collaborators" help, or is that only for designing the form?
    Is there a way to share the form through the app, perhaps specifying kiosk
    mode?

    I'm sorry for the wrong information. I'd like to correct that in our mobile app, the Kiosk Mode allows you to set a PIN to lock the form. The Kiosk mode cannot be closed without the PIN that you have set. But still, you will have to do this on your mobile device, and not to anyone else.

    Guide for Kiosk:

    No, the collaborators won't help either. It's only for editing the form. You can assign the form to anyone through the new mobile forms app, but there is currently no option to set a restriction to just fill or view or both.
