    Saving edited form without re-submitting?

    Asked by adribleier on January 05, 2011 at 12:39 PM

    I created a form with two hidden fields that are to be used by admin personnel.  I know how to edit the form and enter the appropriate data into the hidden fields, but the only way to save it seems to be by submitting the form again?!?  This sends another email and counts against submissions!  There must be something I am missing... please help.

    That's how it worked for a long time and we kept getting people ask us to enable the emails when you edit a form. So many of them asked we had to enable the emails. So, after all that, you are asking to remove the emails.

    I can understand that this may be very important in some instances but could be confusing in other instances... did it always count against a users submissions?  Since I have an order form and would like to track who finalized the order and the date that it was finalized, every order will count as two submissions, effectively cutting my totals in half.

    So, your problem is only with the usage limits? Not with the emails? I think that's something different. We can probably make the edits not included in the usage limits. That shouldn't be a problem. But I can't give a time frame how long this might take. Our development team is very busy.

    Thanks.
