    How can I send forms that have previously been created, back to the original creators, for updating?

    Asked by sgrant101 on July 06, 2017 at 05:32 AM
     

    Hello,

    Let's say I create a form and then email out the link to the form to, say, 200 people. They all fill in the form and submit it. I now have 200 submissions. Some time later (weeks, months) I want the users to update their forms. I don't want to rely on them having kept the original email with the original link in it.

    1) Is there a way to email links to the original submissions, back to the people who submitted, so that they can update their forms and resubmit the updated versions?

    2) Is it possible to do this in a batch fashion, so I don't have to manually compose 200 individual emails, each with unique links?

    I wondered about creating a hidden admin section in the form, which, when it was time to send out the forms for updating, could then be set to 'update' or similar, and then having conditional logic send the form back to the email address in a 'submitters email' field, but, again, unless I manually edit each of the 200 submissions, I'd need some sort of batch update functionality, which I can't find.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Many thanks

    I'm sorry, but I find no way to do this by batch through our system. I find the following that may help you achieve this:

    http://kb.mailchimp.com/campaigns/design/create-unique-urls-for-subscribers. I'm sure MailChimp still has this option.

    https://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/send-personalized-mass-emails-outlook-2010/. This is an old post, I haven't tried this option. But I have Outlook 2010 so I think this will work.
