    Can I disable a form but allow someone with an edit link to edit their previously submitted form?

    Asked by johnlujan on July 19, 2017 at 03:10 PM

    Let's say I want to limit my form to the first 50 people who sign up, then not allow any more people but want to allow the 50 that did sign up to edit their submission. What would be the best way to handle that?

    First you have to go to your settings and change your "Form Status" to "disable on submission limit". You then specify a limit and optional message. Like this:


    Then you have to go to your autoresponder setting. Simply add a row, give the table entry key a name (I chose "Edit Form"). And then in the table entry value give the varialbe name for the Edit Link. You can see in this picture:

    Your clients will be able to click on the Edit Link to modify their forms, even if the count has reached its limit.
