    Can I create a password for guest user of form I created

    Asked by Scioto_Hills_Camp on January 02, 2015 at 03:24 PM

    I couldn't find any article in the guide about creating a password the guest would have to use to be able to get to the form I have created.  Does that make sense?  I want to require a pass code for the participant to enter before they are able to get to the form.

     

    I would appreciate any help with this.

    Thanks

    Hi Jade,

    We discourage creating any type of username/id and password/pass code on the form because the phishing filter in place will always checked the form for such content and it will immediately disable forms that have this component.

    If your jotform is embedded on a website you can just use your website user's access/login account to provide access protection for your Guest users.

    If you do not have a website and only using the form direct URL to provide your users access, then, you can just also add some type of access code on the form using conditional statement using the fomr's condition logic feature.

    Check this user guide: -Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    Here is a demo jotform you can test http://www.jotform.me/form/50015699872463

    The passcode is 'test123' -- if the access code is incorrect you will not be able to proceed to the next page of the form.

    You can also clone the test form in your Form Builder to have a better understanding how I created it.

    Follow this user guide: -How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Please take note: for anyone who understand or have technical understanding of web forms, the passcode can be easily seen on the form if the person knows how to view the source code of the web form. This is the reason we discourage such method in providing access code to form users.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
