    How do I stop the form from being submitted with Enter key?

    Asked by edie850 on January 01, 2016 at 07:51 PM

    I have a form with a "Submit" button.  My clients are hitting the "Enter" button on they keyboard (in error) and submitting the form long before it is actually complete.  This results in multiple submissions.

    Add a captcha field at the bottom of your form. http://www.jotform.com/help/205-How-to-Add-a-Captcha. The captcha is required so hitting enter key will prompt them an error in the form - to complete it. 

    You can also add a confirmation box instead of a captcha. You can use this widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/terms__conditions to do that. Here's how to add a widget in your form:
