    Is there a way to have their completed data auto populate on the 2nd page but they are not able to see the 2nd page without an edit link and approval

    Asked by cobtravel on May 01, 2017 at 03:18 PM

    Is there a way after submitting my form for rounds of approvals for costs to then recall the form after the trip, be reminded of what I submitted and have an additional place to provide actual information to submit for expenses?

    I'm not sure I understood the question completely, but you could add the Edit link to your form, here is how: https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date, and then add certain fields to update the submission as needed.

    Could that work for you?

    Or you had something else in mind?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    I was thinking if I could copy some of their data on a 2nd page and they could enter that page and edit it and submit for expenses. The 2nd time around I would want it to bypass all approval steps I have set up for the first time around. The Submit button would just go to someone completely different on the 2nd page.
    So my question is: Is there a way to have their completed data auto populate on the 2nd page but they are not able to see the 2nd page without an edit link and approval code?

    I believe that's possible. You can populate values from one field to another field (except widgets).

    If you want to pass the field value including the widgets to a text element (uneditable), use this solution https://www.jotform.com/help/418-Pass-an-Input-Field-to-a-Text-HTML-Field.

    If you want to pass the field value to another field, here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/286-How-to-Pass-Field-Value-to-Another-Field

    About the access on the 2nd page, you can create a skip to page condition where if a value of the field on page 1 does not match to the value you defined, you can jump the form to page 3. Note that this isn't a secure feature since conditions are visible in the source code but if this is for regular users, I think this workaround is fine.

    Here's how:

    1. In your form, add a text field to be used as a trigger point.

    2. Create a Skip to Page condition

    3. Then create a condition like the following.

    If "Access Code" is not equal to 1232, skip to page 3.
