    Form ID

    Asked by aviadstark on September 10, 2011 at 10:47 AM

    as a precautionary method against spammers i think that the user should be able to request the system for another for ID. once the form ID changes the form will not be attacked. in general i think you guys should feature many more anti-spam and security measures...

    Hello aviad,

    To prevent spammers from continuously spamming your form, you can set your unique submission settings to strict in your form's preferences.

    You have the following options:

    1. No Check
    2. Loose Check (cookie based)
    3. Strict Check (IP based) - this will prevent bots from posting to your form continuously.

     To do this:

    1. Edit your form
    2. Make sure you are at the Setup & Embed tab
    3. Click Preferences
    4. Go to Advanced Settings tab
    5. Beside the Unique Submission option, click No Checked and it will change to a dropdown menu option
    6. Select Strict Check
    7. Close the Close settings button and save your form

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
