    I want to add a short text question at the end of the form.

    And need to check against the input like a password.

    If the form filler doesn't input it correctly, they cannot submit the form.

    Any suggestion to achieve this? Thanks.

    How about password-protecting the form itself? Here's a guide for that: https://www.jotform.com/help/579-how-to-password-protect-a-form/

    The user cannot open or view the form unless the correct password you set.

    I don't want to hide the whole form from password.

    I want an option only available to admin. Then asking form filler to fill password on that option. If they cannot enter the correct password, they cannot proceed with that option.

    Alright, then you can use this method: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-how-to-show-or-hide-fields-base-on-users-answer

    Use the short text field entry as the criteria. And if your "password" doesn't match with that entry, then the admin fields will remain hidden. Here's an example condition:

    1635850531_61811923e8d37_

    Here's a demo form: https://form.jotform.com/213052971961053

    Please use "opensesame" as the passcode.

    But can still submit the form without having the password correct

    Actually, I want to hide the payment and submit the form if filler can enter password correctly. If not they must complete the payment to submit.
