    There's been no answer to this question? I'm having the same issue. Is there a way to clear the password once it has been answered. The form is being used by a chain of users and certain hidden fields are password protected.

    It is possible to do this at this time, by adding one more required field to your form, and two more conditions.

    I've added a Radio Button field at the end of the hidden section, made this field required, and made it have only one option "Yes":

    Next, I've set up two conditions for update/calculate a field's value. First condition is to place the text "Blank" back into the access key field, when our new Radio Button field is selected:

    This condition alone will automatically hide the entire hidden section as soon as our Radio button is clicked on, and since it is a required field, the form cannot be submitted without clicking on this field.

    Second condition is to update the Radio Button itself - if it is set to "Yes", we calculate it to something else, so that "Yes" is no longer selected and we can again access this section with another access key:

    You can see a demonstration of these in action on this form:

    Please use one of these two access keys to display the hidden section: MyAccessKey or letmein. I believe the above demonstrated functionality is what you were looking for. Please try it out and let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.  The algorithm does work but it also wipes out all the approvals entered by the second user.  It's a complete reset of the entire section and does not retain any information.  is there a work around for this? the only item that should be erased is the password.

    It sounds like hidden fields are having their values reset/cleared.

    Can you please try setting the Clear Hidden Field Values option to Don't Clear, and see if it works correctly after that. The option can be found under Preferences > Advanced Settings:

    I hope this helps.
