    Authorization to complete a form

    Asked by kilgour2 on September 19, 2013 at 08:52 AM

    How can I ensure that people completing a form have the authority to do so? Suppose I could password protect the page on the website where the form is accessed...

    Hi kilgour2 , I would suggest the first and best way being to only share the link of the form with certain users in which you want to authorize to fill in your form. Second, you can also place the form as you mentioned onto a secured webpage which is password protected as your means of authorization of this. Then you can take additional steps such as applying a Unique Submission Limit as " Strict " and even a Unique Question Limit set to " Email " on the form if you wish to prevent multiple submissions of you want that person to only have a One Time Authorization of this after they access the form. These are some things that may help since to protect the authorized access of you forms depending on what you are trying to do since unfortunately we don't really have any other type of feature to allow this that I know of yet.
