    Can forms be password protected?

    Asked by Robert  on June 24, 2015 at 09:15 AM

    Can forms be password protected?

    Can forms be embedded?
    And what are the reporting features built into the platform?

    Thank you for your help with these questions and with my earlier one.

    The answer to this would be yes and no Robert.

    First let me say that since we can only have one question / issue per thread, that I have moved your other questions to their own threads.

    About embedding forms was moved to this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/595656

    The other about the reports has been moved here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/595659

    Now to get back to the password question.

    Due to abuse we do not allow "Password" to be asked for on the forms, but if you are asking for something else - that would not seem as part of login or registration form, that would be OK and possible.

    For example, you can hide only some fields, or hide them all, depending on your preferences. You can see a sample here: How to have multiple step Approval Form with Hidden fields

    You could also hide the form behind the username and password on your own site - for example embed them in a private area.

    Do let us know if you have any specific questions in regards to this and we will be replying to the other threads shortly.
