    How do you save a submission when you edit it?

    Asked by thhoa on March 31, 2017 at 11:03 PM

    User submits for for approval

    Within the form, I have check boxes for approval

    I enter JotForm, click on form and select Submissions

    I then click EDIT in the upper right

    I go into the submission and click the APPROVED box

    AT THIS POINT, HOW DO I SAVE MY CHANGE?  It looks like you can EDIT the submission, but how do you save your edit?

    I want to be able to EDIT the submission, make approval, put in notes, etc.....then REPLY back to the requestor.  But when I edit the form, I dont see a way to SAVE my edits.

    Hello, just click the SUBMIT button to save your changes. Below is a snippet from the guide I'm linking later:

    Click on the submission entry you’d like to change, which brings it up in the main view. Click the Edit button on the top right corner, which makes all the form data editable.

    Update the form info as you would like, and press submit. Just like that, the submission data has been saved. If you change your mind, you can also press the Cancel Edit button.
