Discover advanced options of the password block
The password block protects you from unnecessary saving passwords.
When to use
Use the password block to let your respondent enter a value that's not visible in the form. Optionally you can use this block to protect parts of your form.
Each question block has common features to present the block the way you need, for example name, description and help text. And most of the question blocks have common options, like the required and exportability options. More information on that can be found in the help article about our form builder.
On top of those common features, the password block has the following advanced options:
Unlike other question blocks the entered values of password blocks aren't saved to the dataset of the form entries by default. In that way the passwords that your respondents enter, aren't saved unnecessary.
If you wish to include the entered passwords in your dataset anyway, you can overrule the default setting by enabling the
Exportability feature and activate the
Include in the dataset setting. Entered passwords will now be saved and readable inside your dataset.
Please make sure you are always careful with using the dataset if you choose to save passwords!
