    How to create a form where one part is not visible to form submitters?

    Asked by FFAEventsReporting on May 19, 2015 at 10:38 PM

    Hi,

    We are looking at options to move from an email based process to one that uses an online form.

    I guess I am looking at a two-part form.

    Part 1 - Person A requests a service and submits the form.

    Part 2 - We review the request, enters the name and phone number of the allocated personnel and sends either an updated form or an email with all the details as entered in Part A and Part B.

    The fields for Part A would not be able to be viewed by Person A.

    Is this possible?

    Hello FFAEventsReporting,

    The fields for Part A would not be able to be viewed by Person A.

    I believe you meant "The fields for Part 2 would not be able to be viewed by Person A." Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You password protect a section of your form and add conditions in your form to show / hide form fields based on the password entered by user.

    Please take a look at the following threads where I have explained it step by step on how to achieve this:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/401633 

    Do take a look and see if the solution offered fits into your requirement.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
