    use jotform to create a password enabled form, password imported as csv

    Asked by jason  on May 20, 2015 at 05:42 PM

    Hi, I would like to import a csv file with passwords or ID's that are unique to each visitor. The ID's will be sent to them by US mail. Upon entering the password that matches one from the csv they will be redirected to a new page.

    If the password does not match a password in my database then they will get an error message in jotform asking them to reenter the password. Is it possible to do this in jot or does this require custom integration? If integration is required can this be done by you or can you explain breifly what is required so that I can properly describe what I need to a programmer. thank you

     

    note:

    basically I just need a form with one field for them to enter a password and the password they enter must match one that is in the csv. Perhaps there is a better solution?

    You can use the Unique ID widget into your form, instead of password field (which is not allowed on our forms).

    Check the user guide on -Add-Custom-Unique-IDs-to-your-Form-Submissions

     

     

    the end-users should be able to receive via confirmation email the unique ID# which then they can use as the code to access your CSV data in your database or wherever the location of the data is..

    As mentioned, you cannot use password method or fields on the form. This is because the phishing filter in place will detect this on the form and will blocked it because it will think the form is a phishing form.

    Hope this help. Let us know if this solution works for you or not..

    Thanks.
