    For security reasons we want people to register them first before they are allowed to upload pictures and supply text for a website. 

    I have solved it to create two separate forms. In the first form - the register form - I have put an unique ID-field which will generate "passwords". However 'password' is a big word for it ;-)
    I used the AZ# tool, so it generate some fix text as "ABCDF" followed by the automatic counter. So everyone will have the same structure and same characters in his password, only the digits will be different. 

    As ABCDF001 / ABCDF002 /ABCDF003...  

    The subscriber will get his "password" by confirmation e-mail. When he'll login again in another form, he has to fill in first his "password" before he will be able to go to the next page of the form. 

    I have setup a condition in Jotform that will look if the 'password' field will contain the characters "DF" -and if so- the customer is allowed to go to the next page. When the customer will type in "DF" in the password field the text "correct" will be also displayed (a hidden field that will be showed with conditions)

    This all seems to works. But...

    (1) Customers will see there goes something wrong as soon they start typing their "password" cause already after a few characters the text "correct" will appear (quit normal and with the condition) but for the customers it looks strange and mightby they don't trust it. 

    (2) Nothing will happen for the customer when he'll make a mistake with his password. He even't don't know he's wrong or he's to correct his input...

    There could be found an easy solution to solve this, but it's not yet available in Jotform. 
    Solution for me would be making the PREFIX text in the unique ID-field will not be displayed BEFORE but AFTER the counting number, so at the end...

    001ABCDF / 002ABCDF / 003AABCDF...

    Then I can make the condition "when the value of the field will end with 'DF' go to next page etc...
    And then the customer has to type in the full "pasword' before the text 'coorect' will appear. 

    Would it possible to do?  

    Thanks a lot !


    PS. This of course will not not solve my point (2) ;-)
