    How can I save the data entered so that people can return and see what they entered the first time?

    Asked by HerderTraining on December 31, 2016 at 02:28 PM

    I have a questionnaire that asks people to fill out their goals and vision for the future.  When I use your demo example and go back to continue the information I put in the first time is not there the form is blank. I feel like I must be missing something. I thought the goal was to save the data entered into the form. I need to allow people to go back see what they wrote and add to, edit or delete what they wrote the first time. Is this possible with Jot Form?  If it is that is great but how to I get the date to show up in the forms when my clients go back to it?

    I believe you are referring to function where your users can edit their own submissions and re-submit it. If yes, then please refer to this user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date.

    You can also send them the "Edit Link" privately. Here's an example:


    You need the URL (https://www.jotform.com/edit/) and then the (submission ID). The submission ID can be found in the Submissions page. Here's how:

    If you are referring to the Save and Continue Later function then you may refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need further help. Thank you.
