Jotform Embed Requires Login

    I’m trying to understand why when I choose to embed a Jotform on my own website, it requires people to login to or create a Jotform account.

    Why would this be the case?

    I should add, that is occurring before they can fill out the form.

    Hello Colton! This happens when a form's access is set to private. Simply setting it to public mode should fix the issue (as shown in the screencast below).

    In case you still face issues after this, let us know the Form ID/URL and we'll take a look.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your quick response. (Colton is my son who is working on this with me.) Your insight solved the problem.

    There is one last adjustment that I wish we had more control over. When a student takes the quiz, the screen comes up to report their score. It includes an encouragement to "try harder", etc. Is there any way that we could modify that?

    I tried to simply bypass that thank you page by clicking the option to instead go to our own thank you page, but that does not seem to work.

    Best Regards,
