How to configure honeypot in CF6

Where can I find a manual to configure honeypot?
I try to do so in a multipage form. These are the steps I took:
- in the designer: honeypot field added on page 1 - changed the name e.g. honeypot
- in the setup: add check honeypot in on submit-event - fieldname {honeypot}
- then in fail : redirect action (nothing changed in the settings)

HI Pokomon,
The Check HoneyPot action needs to be in the event that the first page submits to - in a multi-page form that will probably not be the Submit event but Page 2 or whatever name the second page has been given.

Step 1) Put Honeypot element under design tab on your form
Step 2) copy honeypot name
Step 3) Put Check Honeypot action in your submit event, paste the honeypot name into the Field name
Step 4) in the Fail event, do whatever you want to do when the honeypot test fails

It's really not that complicated. If you want everything to just stop, put a stopper in the fail section. If you want it to go back to the start, put an event loader in. If you want a message to be displayed to the user, put a message in first and then whatever else you want to do.
These will only stop automated responses though. It can't stop a person who takes the time to fill it in themselves

Hi Witzket,
Use one of the Captchas; use serverside validation for the important inputs; add custom serverside validation isf there is a patter you can recognise e.g. an IP group or URLs in textarea content.
