Interface Feature Availability
Temporary user available using Produce web interface only.
Temporary users (sometimes referred to as Guest or Anonymous) are able to save and resume forms at their leisure.
When a temporary user saves a form, a dialog will appear with a custom message and access code. The access code and URL can be emailed to the recipient. Clicking the project link will detect that a temporary user has used this form and will redirect to the access code login page. Once the user enters their access code they will be granted access to the form.
Lock out: If user lock out has been enabled in the security settings, when a user enters an incorrect access code, the access code will not work during the lock out period.

And an email will be sent to the desired email address.
- Clicking on the form link from the email, will redirect the Guest user to Temporary user login page. This will require the temporary user to enter the Access Code received in the email.
- Once logged in with the Access Code, the temporary user can then continue with the in-progress form.
An alternative way of using the temporary user is to resume in-progress form.
Saving an in-progress form generates an access code which is email to the recipient. This access code can be re-used at a later stage to resume the form where it was left.
The resume button can be enabled through Project Properties as below:
A customized "Resume Button" text will appear on the page navigation in the wizard for a guest user.
Clicking the resume button on the form in Produce will redirect user to the temporary user login page which will request for Access Code and Email to resume form.
Temporary user can provide the Access Code and Email received upon saving the in progress form to resume this form at the same stage.
