    restrict access to custom url forms?

    Asked by MerleRBC on March 04, 2015 at 05:46 PM

    Hi there, how do I restrict public access to a form with custom URL? Right now, I've created:


    but technically, anyone who finds that link can fill out the report and submit it. How do I set up password protections (based on sub-user login) with this form? Or, if not possible, is there a workaround?

    Hi Michelle,

    Unfortunately we have no option to password protect your form. You can however use conditions to create a work around for your form.

    You would create a text box and associated with a  condition, that when specific text is entered all the fields on the form will show.

    You would place all your fields under a collapse heading so that all fields are shown when the code is entered.

    You can see the test form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50627077181960? 

    The form key is : testcode

    You can clone the form to your account.

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Hi there,

    I cloned the form per your instructions but now would like to save it as a secure form with a custom URL named "CallReport". It says that Call Report is already in use but when I go to preview the form, the url is: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50645431999971.

    How do I change it so the link is persistently: https://secure.jotformpro.com/MerleRBC/CallReport and the preview shows the same secure link? (The secure form feature seems to not be save-able?)
