    Hello,

     

    I want to use a registration form to allow users to see data. After they have registered then each time the user requests the page the form is bypassed and access is granted.

    Hi there,

    If you're referring to membership registration, unfortunately we do not have such feature. What you can do is to create a registration form and add an autoresponder message and include the website URL's you'd like the users to view after the registration.

    Here's how to create an autoresponder for your guide. http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder. You can include anything or customize your autoresponder email body.

    Feel free to let us know if you have further questions or if you need further assistance regarding on this idea. Thanks!

    By the way, we also have verification app which might help. You can create a custom verification page for your form before users could get access with your page. http://subverifier.jotform.io/

    Elton, thank you.

    This thread, http://www.jotform.com/answers/278657-Don-t-show-form-using-java-if-user-has-completed-it-in-past-x-number-of-days, is more like what I'm thinking. But, too much javascript to write for us "basic users."

    Can jotForm create a simple way to add "read cookie/write cookie" to a form with very basic conditional logic? Parameters: cookie_name, value, expiration...

    Logic: if cookie and value skip form, else, display form.

    Thank you,

    Hi,

    This one would help: http://sicanstudios.com/post/set-cookies-javascript/

    Since we do not have direct feature for that, we can provide you a sample code using the above cookie script.

    How many days you'd like the form to appear on user's browser once the page is visited by the user?

    Base on the cookie script along with your idea, the conditional logic would be this.

    If cookie equals "hidden",

      then hide the form

    else

    display the form (set expiry days)

    Is this somewhat like what you want to achieve?

    Let us know so we can assist you further. Thanks!
