    Unique Submission's Loose Check: Can Loose check prevent the submissions also on cloned forms?

    Asked by gives on July 10, 2015 at 03:01 PM
    If you have a form with Loose Check on and you Clone it to a whole new form, do you get a unique cookie?  In other words, can the user submit on the 1st and the 2nd form once or will the Cookie from the 1st form submission prevent the 2nd form submission?

    Cloned forms have a unique Form URL and is considered as a different form already. Cookies are stored in your web browser while you're browsing the Form's link. When you make a submission it will also add a cookie that a submission was made on that particular form. Every time you load that same form on your browser, it will send a cookie back to the server to notify the website of your previous activity and that's how Loose Check works. So, when you clear your browser's data, the cookies will then be removed and there will be no cookie that will be sent back to the server. 

    I hope this answers your question. If you need any further assistance or clarifications, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help you. Thank you.

    Just for clarification: 

    The cookie stored for the first form after submission does not prevent the submission on the second form. Cookies are created on your browser when you visit a website or your form's link. There will be a unique cookie created for each form link you open on your browser. As what I have explained above, Cloned forms have a unique form URL and is considered as a different form already.
