    Hidden conditional data in forms vulnerable to cloning?

    Asked by LDMedia on September 23, 2011 at 08:48 PM

    If I wanted to achieve a purchase option that was available only with a 'promotional product code' using conditional show/hide fields, like this:

    i.e. If 'field X' = 'promocode123' THEN show 'promo prices purchase field' AND hide 'normal prices product field'

    If 'field X' does not equal 'promocode123' THEN hide 'promo prices purchase field' AND show 'normal prices product field'

    Could a user discover the form conditions and thus cheat the promotional code by cloning my existing form from URL using a free / their own jotform account?

    When the form is cloned the saved conditions are also carried over to the
    duplicated form on another account. Unfortunately there is no fix to stop
    the form from being duplicated using the clone feature.

    Just a suggestion to protect your form from user abuse you might
    want to put up a password protection.
