    I need a password required protected page submit button

    Asked by tvprich on October 07, 2014 at 11:27 AM

    I have a website that advertises potential investors to my clients product. In order to view a special "Information Page" I have generated a standard form for potential investors to fill out before they can proceed to the next page that includes the privy information.

    After they have filled out the form I want a way for them to go back to that information page without having to fill out the same form again, and without having to remember the URL address.

    I need an initial "Password required" submit button that either requires a specific predetermined set of characters of my choice, and/or simply to enter any proper number of digits in the box next to it's submit button, so that returning visitors, that have been emailed the "secret" code can simply enter it, and hit it's submit "Enter" button, instead of having to re-fill out the whole form again.

    Hi tvprich,

    To confirm, you would like person to enter a specific code to access a specific form?

    If that is the case, at this time we do not have a built in feature to password protect your forms. You can however use our Conditions feature to show / hide form fields based on the input of any text box. This will allow you to achieve the same goal.

    Please follow the steps below to use the conditional work around:

    1. Add a "Form Collapse" field at the start and end of your form. You can set the "Visibility" of the form collapse as "Hidden" and the "Status" as "Open". Please check the screenshots below:

    2. Before the first form collapse, add a "Text Box" field where your user can input the password. You should not use the word "Password" as the label in your form. You can use words like "Code", "key", "authorization". We have automated anti-phishing system which scans all forms and mark them with probability of being used for phishing activities, using the word "Password" will make your form be detected.

    3. Add a condition in your form to check the input text of the "Code" text box. If the password matches, you can show the entire form collapse field. This will allow all of your form fields to be shown.

    This would set up the form that when twisted in entered into the field, the rest of the fields will be shown.

    I made the changes to a cloned version of your form. You can clone my form

    The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    I hope this is a good alternative to you. Please inform us if you will need additional assistance.
