    I'm not sure that that could work with hash at the end of the URL. Instead, I would suggest using the code that will reveal a part of a form for each supervisor. 

    You can also check this guide made by my colleague, it might help https://www.jotform.com/answers/742263-How-to-create-an-approval-workflow

    Regarding the date when the form is edited, you can use our Get Form Page URL widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_form_page_url since then you can create a condition like this:


    Could that work for you by any chance?

    1) thanks..i found a simple way to do it luckily Jotform allows me to set up an edit submission link in the below format...it makes things simple...



    2) i created the same type of condition to update the date field..but it does't work if the source date field is hidden when we're in edit mode..so i decided to keep the source datefield visible at all times...
