    You can assign forms to users and manage the access settings to Public, Private or Company Access only.

    Hi Jenni,

    If you would like to send the form to a certain group of people, I suggest setting the form in Private mode, then send the form through an invite, please refer to my screencast below:


    So that the form can only be accessed through the link sent to the email recipients. If someone will try to access the form without the link invite, they will be prompt with this message:


    You can also, password protect the form for additional security, please refer to this article:  Password-protected forms

    Let us know if it didn't meet your requirements.
