    How to allow users to edit their submission only

    Asked by kennywall77 on July 25, 2017 at 01:34 PM



    We have a form we would like users to be able to add information to after the form is submitted. We created an admin tab and passcode to allow the users to enter the additional information.

    However, they need to be able to access the original submission to add the information. Is there a way to restrict their access to only this form and not all our other forms?




    Thank you for your help!

    Upon checking the form, I see that you have set up an email autoresponder that will be sent to your respondents after they have successfully submitted your form. In the email autoresponder's content, you can add an edit link that your submitters can use if they want to edit their submission.


    If you want to change the text of the edit link in the email content, please refer to this guide — How-to-Change-the-Text-of-the-Edit-Link-in-Your-Email-Alerts

    I hope this helps. If, in any case, I have misunderstood your concern, please feel free to contact us again and let us know.
