    I have a public facing QuickBase form that is starting to receive spam submissions.  All I want to do is put a Google recaptcha in the form but cannot find any support for doing this in QuickBase?  Any suggestions please?

    I haven't done it, but here is a start:

    It is so easy:



    reCAPTCHA V2 ~ Add New Record

    Pastie Database

    Notes:

    (1) I hide the Save / Cancel buttons untill the reCAPTCHA was correctly answered. This behavior could be improved to provide better feedback.

    (2) You wanted simple so I made it simple although there are a lot of additional features that could be implemented.

    (3) You will have to obtain your own reCAPTCHA key - don't use mine or I will hunt you down. BTW, Google's reCAPTCHA API can return your ip address.

    (4) My understanding is that adding reCAPTCHA to forms was considered by QuickBase but it fell outside the 80/20 rule so marketing punted on hardcoding the feature.

    Once again JavaScript saves the day!
