Can I hold a list of registered emails that I can check against on user input?

    I would like form users to gain access to a page only if their email is registered.

    Thanks for contacting us. If i get your question right, you need to give only regsitered users (those that you have their email) access to your jotform account to access information (forms and siubmission reports) right?

    Unfortunately, accounts can only have one user. If you only want to give other people access to a form's submission entries, you can do so by setting the submissions page to public, so they can be accessed by anyone with a password.

    1.  Go to My Forms
    2.  Click on the specific form then click te Submissions button

    3.  In the submissions page, click the settings icon then check the option "Make This Page Public"

    4.  Give the public submissions page a password, then copy the url provided

     

    or you can add the emails you need to access reports on notification emails by separating them using commas.

    If what you want is to give other people permission to create/edit/delete forms and submissions, I am afraid the only way to do that is by sharing your account username and password.

    If this information didn't capture your intended answer, please give us more details of your question and will try to find a workaround for you.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there is not way to do this if you have a lot of people registered to view that certain page. However, as a workaround on that.

    By setting up conditions on the email field with the registered emails.

    1. Goto My Forms page.

    2. Select Condtions.

    3. Select Show / Hide a from field.

    4. Select the Email Field then Equals to then the registered email.

     

    For you to redirect users to the page. Follow this steps:

    1. Click Thank You.

    2. Key in the URL you want them to be redirected to.

    Hope this helps. Thank you

    Thanks for all the information Gori, but I may have phrased the question wrongly.

    I wish to restrict access to a page on my website by only showing the submit button when one of a fixed set of emails is entered (I already have the email list).

    This is my form: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/21277275893363

    I hope this is clear!

    Gori, I have just seen and responded to moonzkie's post ... Andre

    Thanks moonzkie. This was going to be my next approach, but I have about 50 emails that need to be registered and, despite the fact that it will be quite arduous entering them all, I wasn't sure whether there was a limit to the number of conditions that can be entered. Do you know?

    Thanks ... Andre

    There is not limit on the amount of conditions you can create but in my opinion, a form should not use that many conditions, as it may have an adverse effect on people using old computers. Their browsers may not be able to handle the script responsible for your conditions, leading to (potentially) inaccurate data input.
