Using page break for password protecting a form - multiple users

  • Profile Image
    Asked on November 08, 2010 at 03:04 PM

    Hi there,

    In this post you indicated that using OR on conditions would allow you to add multiple 'users' and 'passwords' on a form.

    I've gone to: Setup and Share > Conditions > Skip to Page

    I've then added a condition that a person should enter a username and password. It skips to a page (2) with the same login fields but a (free text field) message saying that they entered their details incorrectly. That works fine. Where do I find the OR condition to add more users?

    Cheers :)

    I see that you have already found a great solution for this. You should probably only have a password field and ask for passwords.

    An "or" field is needed to do this. Getting this to work with one user is easy. Not possible with more than one. Here's another thread that has another approach, same dead end:


    Any help?

    Workaround is to create a form with many pages... say 10. The first page has the drop down menu of names, and the next 8 have a password field. Depending on the dropdown choice, it leads them to 1 of the 8 password pages. To exit that password page to go to the final page, they must enter the correct password associated with the username chosen. 


    Only problem with this solution is creating more users would need you to reconfigure all the conditional pages... unless you set the final page as page 2. Then you can just add the rest after and always refer to page two as your final page.


    Does that work?!

    Hi jonsan32,

    First of all, thank you for using JotForm.

    I've tried replicating your issue on our end with 3 users in a 5-page form. Yes, it will work, but with that, you have to deal with literally several conditions which, if not properly reviewed, override other conditions. With that in mind, I believe having that kind of complexity for a form can be best achieved through application of programming language in your form's source code, (e.g. PHP). If you will have to create something as mentioned above with JotForm's Conditional Logic, you will have to work with a long list of conditions, which can be very tricky. The more users you have, the more password you'll insert, which gives more conditions for your form. And the more conditions you make, the higher possibility that the form's performance will be affected.

    You can get the form's source code by clicking "Embed Form" under the "Setup & Embed" tab, and select source.

    setup and embed

    However, let's still see what we can provide as a workaround to achieve something close to what you've specified. Hope this helps. 

    If you have further issues and concerns, please feel free to contact us again.

    Hi bimallakhani,

    I am not quite sure what you question is.

    Could you please open a new thread and detail exactly what it is you are trying to do?

    You could use to send your people to separate forms... It's free
