    Hi,

    Could I make the following request:

    The ability to be able to password protect a form submission i.e. a field whereby the form-filler has to enter a password before it will be submitted.

    Note: I understand the workaround with .... pagebreak .... with password field that relies on a condition ... no good not secure as can be seen in code ... and is an unwanted hack.

    Many thanks

    Regards Mark

    Hi mark,

    Thanks for this request. Unfortunately there is no way to password protect forms on JotForm. You should probably have a password protected area on your site (by possibly using .htaccess) and keep your forms there. 

    The thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/21374-How-can-I-password-protect-a-form shares a workaround to accomplish a password protection feature but please be aware of the limitations as stated also in the thread.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your feature request. As of now yes, you are right the only workaround that we have is with the conditions. However, I see how this might be useful. I will try to submit this to our feature request list and hopefully, our developers can integrate this in the future.

    Thank you for using Jotform. Let us know if there's anything else that you require assistance with.

    Thanks for your responses. I have dental clients. Although the form is just an audit form - the data, and its integrity, is important.

    The protection of the form to prevent unwanted submissions is an important issue with the client. I don't want to password protect the form page - just control the submissions in a measured way. No unauthorised personnel can make a submission.

    Thanks for your consideration

    (Please don't mention Captcha ;)

    Unfortunately, we will request you to add Captcha field under Power Tools. That will stop spammers and ensure old serious users do submit their forms.

    Sorry for mentioning captcha against your wish.
