    You can do a similar thing using conditions.

    Choose "Change Thank You URL after submission", and then add your conditions that will modify thank you url (the url user will be redirected after filling out form). But beware, you need to add many conditions, specifically as many as your user count. And we do support password fields nor we offer password authentication functionalities.


    If your aim is to somewhat create a permission system based on user id's than doing it on JotForm like this, would not be so secure. But to your question, yes you can definitely do something like that using conditions feature.


    Thank you!

    I asked a friend and he said that when he tried to create such form with jotform he got banned and he got an email by jotform "we do not allow login forms".

    Is that true?

    Yes, that is true. Since login forms mainly used by phishers to collect logins, we had to disable and forbid it. But you can do similar thing with our using password fields. Like answer to a secret question.

    Yes that is allowed as long as you will not used username and password combination. Secret key or secret answer is enough to make the redirect condition working.
