    Can I determine who can fill out my form and who can only view it?

    Asked by katarina82 on September 04, 2013 at 04:13 PM


    I'd like the customers to be able to view the form online (so they can see what to expect, but not fill it in), but only the ones who purchase the product and receive the fulfillment form to actually fill it in and submit it.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Hello, unfortunately you cannot password protect a form. But you are able to store the form on a password protected area of your site.

    Also, you could have a "sample" form for everyone to see without a submit button. While you have the actual submitable form hidden from non customers. Customers would then be able to access the real form when a link is sent to them through email, maybe upon purchase.
