    Edit Protection of a Form / Password Security

    Asked by zenhome1123 on April 04, 2012 at 11:09 AM


    We were wondering if we can lock a submission of a form so that it can not be edited.  It seems a bit unsecure that a form can easily be edited.  We use our forms called "New York and San Francisco Service Agreement" for our clients to fill out some very pertinent details and instruction when we are in their home.  Since these forms can be edited and therefore changed it seems to be a bit of an issue for the submitter.  For example if we were using the forms for test and the submitter knew there test could be edited and even changed this would be very unethical.

    Is there a way submissions can be locked after they are submitted?  Also Is there a way we can require a password to make any changes to a form.  Several of our employees have accesss to the forms currently and we have noticed various accidents with adding of field, etc.

    I look forward to your reply!

    Firstly to ensure you have secure form submissions, you can use Jotform's SSL feature, see this link for guideline, http://jotform.com/help/63-How-can-I-receive-SSL-Submissions

    About the employees having access to the forms, you can try to change login details of your account if it is shared. You can ensure you retain the original submissions by copying forms to their accounts by cloning the forms.

    Unfortunetly we don't support password security feature. Thanks for contacting us.
