    How can I retrieve specific customer field info from previously saved form for PW comparison?

    Asked by Winston on December 05, 2011 at 05:07 PM

    What I'm trying to do:  Essentially, I'm interested in creating a dynamic password scheme where the user navigates to a jotform from an auto-responder email containing the URL and the dynamic password.  The password sent via email might consist of Username + ID (hidden) fields.  This I can do.

    What I need: Once user enters Name and Password, upon clicking submit, the "dynamic" password would be retrieved and compared to user-provided password before redirection to a new page.

    Many, many thanks.

    I hate to say this but retrieving data from previous submissions via a form is not possible. Your goal exceeds JotForm's capabilities. You might be able to accomplish this though by creating your own custom script.

    I am sorry if I couldn't be of further help with regards to that. Should you need help with other things related to JotForm, do not hesitate to let us know.
