How can I have people sign in to verify their identity before a form is sent?

    I had a problem with somebody sending an obscene message and fake email address to me via one of my forms (the person erroneously thought my site was collecting emails for spamming purposes). To prevent this in the future, I was wondering if there was a feature to have people sign in to verify their identity (using their yahoo, facebook, open ID etc credentials) before the form could actually be submitted?

    I've attached an example screenshot.

    Hello rbarber,

    Unfortunately, there's no feature in jotform to use 3rd party authentications for your forms.  You will have to look for a solution to do this using the search engine.  But to be able to do this, you will need to hide your form behind the authenticated page (you'll need a lil bit of programmiing)

    You may find one of these things useful to use your 3rd party authentication. - You may not be using a wordpress site but this may have the same concept

    Let me know if this wors for you.
