Is there a way that we can forbid certain characters in our form? Our team is concerned about users being to inject scripts and we'd like to prohibit certain characters

Theoretically, you can use the form's Customize HTML tab in Form Settings to add the pattern attribute to the input field, however, if it's for a lot of fields, it'd be easier to use jQuery to restrict the user from entering certain characters into all input fields in all your forms.
