    How can I create a check-in and check-out form that autopopulates as it works?

    Asked by cmcnutt42 on April 11, 2017 at 02:07 PM

    I essentially want to create this exact same form, except not in Google Forms: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/checkitout/ociehaocmpicgbfmogelhdhgjjhjimpn?hl=en-US

     However, I want users to be able to enter in their own name, then "check themselves out" afterwards.

    Is there an easy way to do this?


    Thank you!

    The only way I could think of to do this would be to create a single form for both check and check out and send an edit submission link in an autoresponder email:


    Users would submit the checkin portion upon arrival and receive a submission update link in the email confirmation.  When users return to the form through the edit link to check out, their previous submission data will be populated to the form.  They can then update their submission with the checkout data.
