    How to password protect form access?

    Asked by Adriana26 on May 13, 2014 at 08:17 PM

    I've followed the information I've found here regarding coupon codes for my form.  I created two forms, both of which needed specific word codes.  Each was a different code for that particular form.


    I thought i was setting things up propoerly using the page break and the 'skip to' option, but it seems that regardless of how many times I did them and re-did them, every time I tried either of the forms, the click would allow going to the next page regardless of the word I typed.  So, the word on one form was EASTRAMAP and even if I just typed Hello or 1234, it would go directly to the next page.  This happened with both forms.


    I just cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I had been usine IE browser when I first started but thinking it might not work with the browser, I moved over to Chrome. Nothing changed.


    Can you please help?? I'm doing this for a client (not on this account) and I'm just not getting it right somehow.


    I''m sending the URL below. Please go to the bottom of the page for the Coupon Codes section. You'll see both side by side under :FOR EAST RAMAPO TEACHERS COUPONS           and     FOR i9Sports COUPONS


    Please let me know what I may be doing wrong.



    ps:  I really do love Jotform!!

    Hello Adriana26,

    If I understand your question correctly, if the code entered is not correct you want to restict your users from going to next page. Is that correct?

    I did check your form but the way you want to achieve is it not possible. The next button will always be visible and user can click it to go to next page.

    You can take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to achieve your requirement. Please be noted that if someone checks the form's source code on browser, they will be able to see the password. Idea is to move your entire form inside a "Form Collapse" field. You can have a text box where one can input the texts and if it matches with your condition, you can show the form collapse which in turn will display your form. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this is what you wanted to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41330324540945?  Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
