    Password for a form

    Asked by Will  on October 06, 2015 at 11:09 AM

    Can I create text box require users to enter specific words? It is like a password for the form. Users have to enter the correct password before they can submit the information. Not CAPTCHA type of password. It is a specific password I pick for this form.

    It can be done with a hidden field and a condition.

    We absolutely do not allow collection of any passwords through your forms, because collecting passwords is considered as phishing and is forbidden as such by our terms.

    However, you can make your form accessible and fillable to only the people that have a special access key of sorts, similar to a password, but it would have to be the same key/password for all users. This can be achieved by using our conditional logic to hide the rest of your form unless a special access key is entered correctly in one field.

    For this to set up, it is generally easiest to use a Text Box field at the top, named something like "Access key", and use a Form Collapse tool just under it that would conditionally display the rest of the form if the access key is correct.
