    Is it possible to create a form where users can enter a set username and password?

    Asked by ionrad on October 12, 2010 at 09:36 PM

    Is it possible to create a form where users can enter a set username and password, which then reveals more of the form specific to that username/password combination? ie...


    Form looks like this: http://www.jotform.com/form/2845529640

    Which a user fills out to say "Jotform" and "password".

    They then see this: http://www.jotform.com/form/2842220701

    But if another user fills it out to say "Screen" and "keyboard"

    They instead see this: http://www.jotform.com/form/2842803333

     

    I thought of using the Thank-You page to redirect to another form, but then arises the issue of needing multiple pages to redirect to. The form needs to be set up so that users cannot see the products other users can buy. ie. User 1 can see Product A, but not Product B, and User 2 can see Product B, but not Product A.

    The only alternative I thought for this would be for an individual form per user, but then comes the task of keeping the forms organised and giving each one the appropriate link.

     

    Any suggestions or pointers would be much appreciated! (:

    Unfortunately, there is nothing on JotForm that support this. You should probably get a coder and implement the login part on your own site. Then you can include the payment form for each user type.

    STEPS:

    1. Make a username and password field.

    2. Create fields to show/hide.

    3. Open the conditions wizard choose hide/show a field and press next.

    4. Choose the field that the user enters their username in the first dropdown.

    5. Choose equals to in the second drop down and enter a username in the text box.

    6. In the bottom left hand corner press add a new rule.

    7. Copy steps 3-5 execpt instead of the username do password.

    8. Under the rules it should look like this. (Bold means a dropdown):

    If ALL of these conditions are matched then SHOW/HIDE the CHOOSE YOUR FIELD TO SHOW/HIDE

    9. Copy steps 2-8 for each user.

    Yes, but the problem is the password field. At the other end when user input the password, the password is not secured. For ex. if the password is "john" when you input john it will show john instead of ****. Is there any possibility to hide the password?

    @triumph2,

    I have already addressed your question in another thread. You can use the Password Box field under Power Tools for this purpose.
