    SubAccount Edit Permission Only - Doesn't Work

    Asked by drewmck on March 22, 2017 at 07:40 PM


    I gave a user the permission to edit all forms.

    When he tried to edit a form something went wrong. Once he tried to save the change the system brought the user to the main page and it didn't change anything.

    I looked at his account and the pricing seems be different from my pricing plan.


    So my pricing is Bronze, I gave permission to a user that has Basic. Should all user be under the same pricing?

    In addition, why i can add a user and give permission to edit if he cannot?


    It is a bug or an error that I did setting up the user?


    please help


    Thank you very much.

    Granting permission does not require both the accounts to have the same plans.

    I would suggest you to follow the step by step instructions provided at https://www.jotform.com/help/232-How-to-Share-Forms-with-a-Sub-account-User

    Let us know if you still face any issue.

    Provide us  screenshot of any error or unexpected behavior you encounter.

    We followed the guide the first time. Jotform has a bug though. Unless I missed something that can happens.


    The users that have only permission to edit, cannot edit the form.

    If I give to users permission to edit and view they can edit.

    I cannot attach a screenshot because there is not error. That's what happens:

    1) Users who has only permission to edit try to edit the form.

    2) They can make changes

    3) When they save the form the system come back to the home page and the form doesn't save the changes. o error shows.

    any update about my issue?

    The user that need to edit form uses my permission at the moment.

    I would preferable that users has their account for audit purpose.

    Please let me know if you need further information

    Thank you
