    I would like my users to enter a password BEFORE filling out my forms...

    Is this possible?

    Hi,

    We do not recommend that you use the word "Password" to your field, we have an anti-Phishing system and a manual checking that scans all our forms, when a form violates our "Terms of Use", see the section under "Phishing", our system autosuspends the account and disables all the forms.

    What you can do is rename it to a more appropriate field, let's say "Unique Access Code" or "Authorization Code", something that doesn't resemble any sensitive information. Here's a sample form that I made: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50965918005964.

    Here are the steps on how I made it:

    1. Add a plain text box. Setup Conditions by clicking the its icon.

    2. In the conditions wizard, choose "Show / Hide a form field", to learn more about Conditions you can check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic.

    3. This is the rule and action that I setup. If the "Enter Code" field is equal to "1234" then show all the form fields including the submit button. If this is not meant it automatically hides the said fields.

     

    I hope that helps.

    Kind regards.
