    Is it possible to discard a "spam" form-submission BEFORE the workflow?

    Hey guys,

    I know it's a vague description, but what I need is a "honeypot" solution of sorts. But I do not wish to create a new Workflow for this to work, so I was wondering, and hoping, if there was a different approach?

    For now, all I have been able to find on Google was to create unique Workflows for each specific form-pattern; such as "Contact form", "Rent form" etc.

    Is there a controller of sorts in which you can intercept the request for data-check? I.e. if a field which shouldn't be filled is filled, then the request should be discarded.

    We are using Umbraco 7.12.4.

    Thanks in advance,

    You could create a custom field similar to this Recaptha v3 package -

    Hey Matt,

    Thanks for getting back to me, and sorry for the slow reply. We actually ended up using ReCaptcha as well - But in another situation also ended up creating a new workflow. In both cases I stuck with using ReCaptcha as it seemed like a great and easy approach.

    Thanks once again, I'll mark your answer as the correct one.

    There is a great package without using Google services -

    It uses Plino
