    Can I encrypt a form after creating it?

    Asked by SUDOteamswansea on July 21, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    I have created a couple of forms and then realised I needed them to be encrypted. I cannot seem to find an option to allow me to do this after creating the form, only before. Is there any way to do this without having to create a new form from scratch? Thanks

    Yes, you can do that by going to your forms Preferences and activating this option.

    To do that, click on Preferences:

    Go to Advanced Settings tab and select Yes, for Encrypted Form:

    Once you close your settings (Close Settings button) you should be asked to upload a public key or to create a new one for that form - and that is it.

    Do let us know if you have further questions or issues in regards to this and we would be happy to assist.
