    Asked on December 10, 2014 at 09:50 AM


    I’m currently creating a form for all our clients to fill in and due to this need certain aspects of this to be private. I have managed to create a password field and configure the conditions so that they have to enter the correct password for their section of the form, however I would like to know if I would be able to mask the password so that it is confidential?


    Also due to all our clients filling in our form when we receive submissions it shows all of the boxes and questions, I would like to know if the email sent to us is able to show only populated fields.

    Since we can only answer one question per thread I have moved your other question related to emails here:

    We will be answering it there shortly.

    Now in regards to your question about password fields.

    I would first want to let you know that you must not have a "password" or "pass" field on your jotform since this was abused on our jotforms our system will see it as a possible phishing jotform and will disable your account.

    Instead you can name it as authorization code, code, entry code and similar.

    While it might not get blocked during the design and test phase it will during the entries.

    Now in the same light, the closest that you could do that I could see as a way for users to type the password and that it is not very clear is to change the padding-top entry to move it a bit 'out of the clear' so that only top of the fonts is shown or to make them smaller than possible to read.

    An example would be here:

    Another possibility would be to take the jotforms source code and make the changes in the source that would show the password field, then embed the jotform in your website.

    I hope this helps and do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
