    Form text field masking and required fields sometimes not working

    Asked by HAApplications on September 20, 2014 at 01:38 AM

    I just started using Jotform, and am very pleased so far.  However, my first form seems to have a glitch where people can bypass the field masking and required fields. 

    A few people out of the current 113 submissions have been able to put in phone numbers and dates that do not follow the required mask.  Also

    on the same submissions, the applications were submitted with required fields left blank.

    I'm curious how they can bypass the controls.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I took a look at your form and it did not let me proceed without filling out all of the required fields as it had shown me errors where each of the required fields were.

    For this reason I have created a separate ticket for this here http://www.jotform.com/answers/431835 and we can see here what form masks did not work and how we can fix them.

    Can you please tell me which field masks did not work and what you have tried to accomplish with the same (for example only allow numbers)?

    Best Regards,
