    Can I password protect a form.

    Asked by Addjnow on October 20, 2016 at 09:25 AM

    I am a mobile dj and would like to add a page to my site where a couple would click on their name which would take them to there planning form. I would like them to have to use a password to access there form so others would not have access to it. Thanks for the help.

    Take Care,

    Mike Caporaso

    Hi Mike,

    Yes you can achieve what you want with a workaround but you can't password protect your form, since our phishing filtering system will automatically suspend your account if you attempt to create a field named 'password'.

    So for the workaround, we will use form collapse which will activate on the key/code that you will specify with conditions. Lets take this step by step:

    I'll be using our "Contact Us" template for this example.

    After opening the template, we need to add a text box for the key that you will share with your customers and a form collapse, right under that text box, which we will use to hide the rest of the form:

    In this step, after making the form collapse element's visibility>hidden and status>open, we will add a show/hide field condition for the value that'll be entered to the key text box to show the form collapse element:

    Lets now test our form!

    I hope this workaround will be useful for you Mike. Please let us know if you need anything else.

     

    Scott.
