    Auto-redirect on duplicate submission

    Asked by Marton  on November 15, 2014 at 07:17 PM

    Hi There!


    Can I create forms that can only be filled out once per user?

    Example: user gets a link with a paremeter: http://www.webpage.com/webform.php?email=useremail@gmail.com

    And if user opens this link and fills out form, the next time he opens this same link, he will be redirected to another (specific) page, since he had already filled out this form. So I need some kind of check whether his form is already in the database.

    Is this possible somehow?

    Thank you,

    Marton

    Hello Marton,

    Thank you for taking interest in our product. As for your question, here's what we have to say:

    It is possible to disallow duplicate submissions based on a field (email field, in this example)

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43188693891976?email3=unique@email.com

    When the user submits the 2nd time, he will be shown a (non-customizable) message.

    --------

    And if user opens this link and fills out form, the next time he opens this same link, he will be redirected to another (specific) page, since he had already filled out this form. 

    This one, I am afraid, isn't possible.
